How to report problems with litter in public places

We work to keep our roads and streets clean, removing litter, emptying bins and clearing debris. To do this, we operate a detailed street cleansing, litter picking and weed treatment programme throughout the district.

If you spot a problem with litter on a public highway, please report it here.

If litter is on private land, it is the responsibility of the land owner to remove litter and keep the area clean - you should contact them directly.

Recycling Litter Bins

You can now recycle plastic bottles and cans on the go in Newbury town centre. The seven new recycling litter bins can be found at:

  • Northbrook Street
  • Station Road
  • Cheap Street
  • Market Place
  • Wharf Road
  • Park Way
  • The Broadway

Please make sure your plastic bottles and cans are empty before placing them in the bin for recycling.
