Our mobile cleansing operatives make sure public places such as streets, car parks and public toilets are cleaned frequently to remove litter, the build up of leaves or any other detritus which could pose a risk to heath and safety.

If you notice a bin is over full and hasn't been emptied, please let us know.

When reporting a full litter bin we suggest you download the What3Words app; this means we can now respond to exact locations in very rural areas or in a town environment to find the issue to be dealt with.

The app helps us to find the exact location of the full litter bin by giving small areas 3 unique words. When giving details of the location in our online form, please use the 3 words generated by the app in the location details box.

Our teams have been trialling What3Words and have found it very successful so far, they have found it saves time and enables them to find the full litter bin more accurately, the first time. 

All the emergency services in Devon and Cornwall are now also using the app as a back up to their other location finding systems, so you may find the app useful in future too.
