Street care and cleaning

 

Recycle on the go in Trafford

In Trafford, we have introduced new trio litter bins, meaning you can recycle on the go and help to keep Trafford clean and green. We’re already the top recycler in Greater Manchester; recycling 61.3% but with your help we can recycle even more.

One Trafford Partnership will be introducing 300 new trio litter bins which will now allow everyone to recycle litter whilst out and about.

Abandoned vehicles

If you suspect that a vehicle has been abandoned on a public road or public open space we may be able to remove it.

Dead animals

Dead animals will be removed from public areas within 2 hours of reporting the problem.

Dog fouling

Dog fouling isn't just unpleasant, it's illegal. It can help spread disease, and in extreme cases can cause blindness.

Fixed penalty notices

A Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) is issued in lieu of prosecution. Find out what you need to do if one has been issued to you.
