Our Mobile Cleansing Operatives cover all of East Devon’s towns and villages.
The vans they are provided with are equipped with standard cleaning equipment including, litter 'pickers', brushes and shovels for the removal of litter and detritus.
The majority of our operatives are also trained to recover clinical sharps, (syringes/hypodermic needles) and have recovery kits in their vehicles.
Street cleansing in pedestrian areas is undertaken using our ‘sit on’ road sweepers. We also undertake litter picking on road verges of main and rural roads.
