We currently maintain the grass verges on behalf of Surrey County Council as part of an agency agreement. Within the funding provided by Surrey, the Council's contractors, G. Burleys & Sons are committed to delivering 10 cuts to the urban verges in the Borough each year, with each cycle taking approximately 3 to 4 weeks depending on weather conditions.
We are presently on schedule for grass verge cutting and grass cutting in cemeteries. Our urban grass cutting follows a 4-week rotation for each borough area.
Grass verge cutting schedule.
Please note that although our maintenance contractors have a schedule they must follow to cut the required grass verges, they have no information about bin day collection. They will usually move a bin and carry on cutting, however due to COVID-19, for safety reasons, our contractors are instructed not to touch household bins. If possible you can help by placing bins on a hard surface next to verges. If this is not possible, our contractors will have to cut around the bin and then cut the small area missed on their next round.
