Street care and cleaning

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.

Litter and fly-tipping

Littering and fly-tipping is unsightly, unhygienic, selfish and illegal. We all have a part to play in helping to keep our borough clean and green.

Fly-posting

Fly-posting of advertising notices on lighting columns, traffic lights and other street furniture is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area and contributes to street litter.

Graffiti

Graffiti is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area. Any incident of graffiti should be reported to us.

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.

Grass cutting

We cut the grass on all council owned land such as verges, parks and public spaces.

Public toilets

Locations and opening times of all public toilets in Trafford.

Road spillages

Road spillages can be very dangerous if not attended to. If you spot any spillages you should tell us straight away.

Vandalism

Vandalism is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area. Any acts of vandalism should be reported to us.

Litter bins

Around 1400 litter bins are emptied across Trafford, helping keep the borough clean and tidy.

With over 500 miles of public highway in Trafford, we’re responsible for ensuring the borough is kept clean and tidy.
