Our cleansing team work to a structured schedule, focussing on the areas that are most in need and used most often by members of the public, this includes: deep cleaning pavements and removing graffiti and gum from our streets across a nine hour shift.
Since the start of this year alone, they’ve spent 1,200 hours on additional town centre cleaning. They’ve removed over 400 pieces of graffiti and washed over 500 pieces of street furniture. They’ve also deep cleaned 10,000 square metres of pavement; which, to put in context, is the equivalent of 40 professional tennis courts.
Croydon BID’s investment into an additional day of cleansing will take on a very different focus. The team will spend one day per week providing additional maintenance to neglected areas and street furniture, improving the overall look and feel of the town centre. This additional service will allow Croydon BID to pro-actively work with the business community on requests for improvements such as cleaning areas that are privately owned.
Shaun Webster, Head of Operations said: “The cleanliness of Croydon town centre is of the utmost importance and our team is absolutely committed to delivering the added benefit of deep cleaning. The added investment will allow the team to make even more of a positive impact on the street scene by improving the place in which we work, live and visit.”
He added: “The work our cleaning team deliver is vital. Croydon BID is demonstrating its commitment to invest further, not only in our approach to general cleansing but the need to work with the business community in improving areas that have been seriously neglected for too long.”
Croydon BID works with its cleaning partner, Community Clean who provide expert operators who work across the country in towns and cities delivering first rate deep cleaning programmes. The new three day week programme will start from Thursday 13th June 2019.
