Manchester BID City Centre Cleaning Programme

Manchester Business Improvement District is running a city centre cleaning programme in addition to Council activity.

This is in support of BID levy payers to increase the frequency of street cleaning in the city centre. The aim is to improve the customer welcome and operator experience around Manchester’s main shopping area.

Streets covered include Deansgate, St Ann’s Square, Piccadilly, Market Street, King Street, New Cathedral Street, Exchange Square, Police Street, Mosley Street, Four Yards, Marble Street, Half Moon Street and New Market Lane.

Ramora and Adept Corporate Services have been commissioned by Manchester BID as the service providers.
