Our staff operate throughout the District
cleaning litter from the vast areas of land, highways and roadside
verges for which we have the cleansing responsibility. We
also have responsibility for clearing litter from our two main town
centres at Retford and Worksop, which can be particularly
problematic on market days.
Our efforts are hindered by those irresponsible
individuals who drop litter and fly tip throughout the District.
We work closely with the Council's Environmental Health staff
to identify those individuals and the Council have already taken a
number of prosecutions for fly tipping and will continue to do
This process has been aided with the introduction
of legislation which allow us to ask for proof of proper waste
disposal from commercial operations in the District.

attractive as possible, we collect abandoned vehicles if they are
reported to us or if we spot them. If you do spot one and
report it to us please bear in mind that we have to follow certain
legal requirements before we are allowed to move them except in
exceptional circumstances so we cannot normally move them straight
Report an Abandoned
Hopefully you will not have noticed evidence of
this around the district but sadly from time to time some people do
think that its easier to throw rubbish in a hedge bottom or
deserted lane than take it to a civic amenity site or to the tip.
Unfortunately we have the job of collecting this and try and do it
with the minimum of fuss and as promptly as possible.
