Additional cleansing

Street cleansing is an area in which we have invested considerable time and research to ensure we secure best value. In December 2018 we contracted Bristol Waste to deliver daily additional cleansing to our streets.

Prior to starting our additional cleansing contract, we commissioned a specialist deep clean across the City Centre area including the removal of chewing gum, an operation that had never been completed before.

Our partnership with Bristol Waste delivers 3600 hours a year of additional cleansing, 7 days a week across the city centre. Levy paying businesses can request urgent and regular cleansing, which also includes the removal of unwanted graffiti.
