Street Scene TeamSweeper

Allerdale Borough Council is responsible for looking after some of the UK's most wonderful areas. Whether this is maintaining our spectacular views or keeping our streets, harbours, promenades parks and open spaces clear of litter, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of environmental quality. Unfortunately our job is made harder by a minority of people who ruin everyone else’s enjoyment of their environment by continually dropping litter, not cleaning up after their dogs, or fly-tipping.

These problems are some of the biggest complaints we get from members of the public.

As a result of this, Allerdale Borough Council has employed a team of Street Scene Officers who will take responsibility for their own patch.

  • The aim is to ensure any local environmental quality concerns are dealt with by each Street Scene Officer as quickly as possible. This can be either through working with other organisations, residents themselves or through our own Council contract teams.
  • If you spot any problems with litter, dog mess, fly tipping or graffiti, then please report it online or contact Allerdale Borough Council’s Street Scene Officers on the numbers or email shown below. This way we can help keep Allerdale a great place to live, work and visit.
  • You can view a map of the areas covered by the Street Scene Officers.


The role of the Street Scene Officers includes:

  • Dog warden duties, dealing with issues such as stray dogs, the enforcement of dog bylaws, noise and smell nuisance caused by dogs, dog fouling etc.
  • Litter warden duties, dealing with issues such as litter offenders, the investigation of fly tipping, the storage of domestic and commercial waste so that it does not cause a nuisance and education which is targeted at Key Stages one and two. We also enforce all relevant legislation regarding the above.
  • Investigation and enforcement of trade and domestic waste legislation.
