On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

We operate 7 days a week, 364 days a year and employ more than 80 staff. We are responsible for ensuring that roads and public places within the borough are kept as clean as possible.
