A new agreement between Dublin City Business Improvement District (BID) and ARAMARK Ireland is set to improve the cleanliness of 115 Dublin city centre streets.

The contract awarded to ARAMARK Ireland by Dublin City BID agrees to provide supplementary cleaning services across the 2.5km² Business Improvement District and aims to ensure a cleaner, more attractive environment in Dublin’s city centre.

Dublin City BID is a not for profit organisation charged with creating a welcoming and economically viable city environment. It represents over 2,000 businesses in the city centre and works with its partners to enhance the appeal of the city centre as a place for shopping, recreation and business development by increasing footfall and improving overall trading performance.

Under the agreement, ARAMARK Ireland will provide additional cleaning services to those already carried out by Dublin City Council. These include a rapid response hotline facility for businesses in the BID area to report urgent cleaning requirements. Seasonal street cleaning is provided in the form of power-washing during drier summer months to remove staining and pavement gritting to assist snow removal during winter. The removal of stickers and cable ties from approximately 150 locations around the city will also be included in the service.

Dublin City BID will continue to monitor the cleanliness of the streets through its Litter Pollution Index (LPI).
