We’ve implemented a new and improved cleaning regime using a product with antimicrobial protection. It is being applied to high contact touch points across Bankside such as benches, bus stops, ATMs and traffic lights.

Also look our for our pink pedal-powered hand sanitising stations dotted around Bankside to help keep you reassured out and about in the area. You can find a list of their locations here.

Treating the external entrances of your workplace

We are now also treating local businesses external entrances, particularly those with high touch points on entry, in preparation for their staff returning to work. If your Bankside business would like to take advantage of this service in anticipation of staff coming back to the office, please get in touch to organise.

How does the it product work?

It provides residual polymer based, broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection. A combination of inert ingredients and manufacturing processes gives it long lasting bonding capabilities. It’s water based, alcohol free, non toxic and environmentally friendly.

Our cleaning team

Our cleaning team wash and sweep the streets, remove graffiti, fly posting and gum, providing a cleaning service that is additional to that provided by Southwark Council. You’ll see them whizzing around on pink electric vehicles to help them respond quickly, along with pink gluttons to tackle some of those hard to reach spots.

This is a responsive service, so call us to report any street cleanliness issues and we will come out to help as soon as possible – 020 7928 3998. If you’re in Bankside and notice any areas that need particular attention, please let us know.

The cleaners inspect and clean 73 locations throughout the BID, focusing on spaces that are either not cleaned by the Council or are difficult to clean due to heavy footfall or difficult surfaces. The team also responds to call outs from businesses and other organisations to clean up areas outside their premises where there has been fouling, spillage or dumping of rubbish. In addition if our wardens see any daily cleanliness problems they will call the cleaning team into action.
