Manchester BID: Street 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.

The Programme

  • 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
  • Removing chewing-gum
  • Litter-picking
  • Delivering specific cleaning in response to city centre events.

Request Cleaning

As well as scheduled cleaning, BID levy payer retailers and restaurants can request jet-washing, liquids, litter and graffiti removal as required. Please talk to a City Host or email

Graffiti Removal

Having trouble with the rise in graffiti on Manchester BID premises? We working with Scratch Repair Group to offer an on-site solution to damage being caused to windows by acid-based graffiti products.

No windowpane requires replacement. The work involves sanding and polishing a window on-site, using special tools and materials. Costs vary depending on the amount of damage but are significantly cheaper than replacement.

Please email for any assistance.
