Regular cleaning schedules

Swindon Town Centre, Old Town and retail areas

We clean the Swindon town centre and Old Town retail areas of Swindon between the hours of 6.30am and 8.00pm each day from Monday and Friday inclusive. We also clean local retail areas at least once each day (occasionally more where necessary) to keep a clean and tidy environment.

Cleaning in other areas

We focus our resources in each area for one day each month for an in depth clean. We work jointly with others to eliminate anti-social behaviour. We empty litter bins daily if necessary and we will remove discarded drug related implements e.g. syringes, needles and sharps from the public land within 24-hours.
