Street Cleaning

There are a number of ways to report environmental issues outside or near your business, shop, restaurant, street or in the city centre generally. These could be related to waste, fly tipping, paving, noise or pests for example.

It is recommended that businesses report using the Manchester City Council online system. The Council and its partner agencies will then investigate and report back on the issue.

Council Reporting System

The online reporting system is the most efficient and reliable way of reporting environmental issues to the council. You do not have to register; but doing so will enable you to track any reports through a CRM number provided.

The central City Council switchboard is 0161 234 5000.

CityCo CSR Clean-Up Days

CityCo and Manchester BID coordinate clean-up initiatives that help member businesses meet Corporate Social Responsibility targets. We hold cleaning events across the Business Improvement District of St Ann’s Square, King Street, New Cathedral Street and Market Street – and around Piccadilly, Oxford Road and Northern Quarter.

Teams from M&S, McDonalds, Jigsaw, Costa Coffee, Manchester Arndale, Abode Hotel, Whitworth Locke, Manchester Science Park, MJ Mapp and Bruntwood have all picked-up brushes, washers, scrapers and shovels to show that as a city, we all have a role to play in taking responsibility for our local environment.

Tools, machines and on-to-day assistance are kindly provided by CityCo partners Biffa, Fresh Start Waste, Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Police.

The CSR days support the city’s Keep Manchester Tidy and Our Manchester campaigns to encourage people to take pride in their city.
