CityCo/Manchester BID run a city centre cleaning programme in addition to Manchester City Council activity. This is in support of BID levy payers to increase the frequency of street cleaning in the city centre.

The programme is jet washing pavements, alleys, fire exits, entrances and the general streetscape; deep-cleaning areas that need it; steam-cleaning seating areas, benches and bins; foam-cleaning connecting streets and alleyways; removing liquids and other detritus on the streets; removing graffiti and chewing-gum, litter-picking and delivering specific cleaning in response to city centre events.

BID levy payer retailers and restaurants can request jet-washing, liquids, litter and graffiti removal as required.
