Street Cleansing

Street Cleansing

The Parish is responsible for cleaning roads and pavements within the ring road, and the States' Department for Infrastructure cleans the roads outside the Parish ring road.

The Parish's street cleaning team has been reviewing its methods of cleaning in order to better utilize the current resources. It has categorized each road within the ring road using industry standard guidelines to provide a baseline to work with, and from this information the frequency of cleaning has been determined based on criteria such as footfall, demographics, number and types of businesses on that road.

The team is currently in the process of determining the most suitable methods of cleansing, such as litter picking, manual or mechanical sweeping, and this will be based on a number of factors such as accessibility, surface type, street furniture and other fixed obstacles.

The Parish currently has a range of equipment used within the street cleaning service to ensure maximum coverage, ranging from the basic manual sweeping handcart right through to the big Johnson Road Sweeper. Each piece of equipment has a specific role to play:

  • Handcart - this is a very simple but effective method which can be accessed and used in all weathers. Ideal for use in high footfall areas such as the precinct.

  • Mechanical sit-on Green Machine - using a combination of scrubbing and suction, this is a powerful tool for picking up litter and debris across a number of surface types and can be used in both large and small areas.

  • Glutton - this is an electric battery-powered pedestrian-controlled machine with a suction hose for picking up litter (affectionately known as the "Poodle").

  • Hako - this is a small ride-on sweeper/cleaner, and is useful as a precinct and pavement washer.

  • Medium & Large Sweeper - this is a brushing and suction machine which covers roads and larger paved areas.

  • Hot Pressure washer - this is used to provide a hot wash for the removal of deep stains, spills and chewing gum.

Street cleaning in St Helier is covered by a morning and afternoon crew, operating from 6am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and 6am to 6pm on Sundays.

If you wish to report a street cleaning issue please use the 'Do it online' facility on this website and select 'Report a Street Problem'. Alternatively please call the Municipal Services Depot on 811708 or email msd@posh.gov.je.
