Cardiff permanently extends deep clean programme

06 March 2018

Following a six month trial Cardiff is permanently implementing a deep cleansing programme, across the city.

Over the past six months a specialist "tidying team" has dealt with over 300 cleaning requests put in by businesses and street ambassadors. Wales Online reported that the team cleaned over 70 shop fronts and removed graffiti from 250 sites. 

Now the programme has been introduced on a permanent basis the team will continue to respond to similar requests as part of the council's cleaning service. 

The team will have a fleet of branded vehicles, equipment and uniforms paid for by FOR Cardiff, the organisation who have managed the team and programme since it's inception in August of 2017. 

Executive director of FOR Cardiff Adrian Field said: “The pilot scheme has been a huge success and, based on the positive feedback from our city-centre-based businesses, we are now able to commit to deliver the service for the next few years.

“Our mission is to make Cardiff more welcoming, vibrant and influential and having clean streets plays a big part in that. We want to give visitors the best impression of the city and ensure Cardiff continues to build a positive reputation as a clean city, especially with major events like the Six Nations, the Anthony Joshua fight and the Volvo Open Race happening in the next few weeks and months.”
