Bristol City Centre BID’s Cleansing Team is out seven days a week improving the appearance of our city streets and responding to levy payers’ requests for a rapid cleaning response. It operates in partnership with the Bristol Waste Company

Our team of four uses three dedicated specialist vehicles and began operating in February 2019, deep cleaning pavements, doorways and street furniture to make the city more welcoming and looking at its best.

They have already made a significant difference, providing around 7,000 hours of additional street cleansing each year and complementing the street sweeping and litter removal already carried out by Bristol City Council.

We operate a dedicated response service on cleansing issues in the City Centre BID area which all levy payers can make use of. Email your issue to us and we’ll commit to rectifying it within 24 hours.

Bristol city centre undergoes deep clean and disinfecting

Bristol City Centre BID’s Street Cleansing Fleet is working hard on the front line to clean and disinfect high-contact areas in Bristol city centre to help minimise the spread of COVID-19.

The fleet is thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting anything that people regularly touch or come into contact with, including bus stops, benches, railings, pedestrian crossings and other street equipment.

The team, which operates 7 days a week, all year round cleaning throughout the city centre, has been using specialist disinfectant for all its cleaning operations since the beginning of March. Until further notice, they will be regularly and thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting all street furniture and areas outside local supermarkets, chemists, the Bristol Royal Infirmary and all other areas as required.

They are also cleaning park benches, railings and bins in the city centre’s parks and open spaces to help protect residents taking their daily exercise during the coronavirus lockdown.
