Most road spillages are dealt with by the Street Cleaning team. Where spillages are of a hazardous nature, the local police and fire service may also be involved in the incident and road closures may be required.
In the case of oil spillages, these incidents are usually dealt with by spreading sand over the affected area. To report an oil spillage on a public road, please contact us using the form on the right hand side of the page.
The tops of road gullies are cleaned regularly by our Street Cleaning team. The sump underneath the gulley grid is cleared approximately once a year. Parking can interfere with this process, so please help us by leaving gullies clear where signs are placed.
Road maintenance and management, including street lighting, is the responsibility of East Sussex County Council.
