In pictures: BID Spring Clean tackles Sheffield graffiti

Sheffield BID Clean Team remove graffiti from Theatre Deli

Sheffield BID’s BID Spring Clean is now underway, with the BID’s Clean Team working hard to remove unwanted graffiti and tags from privately owned commercial properties in Sheffield city centre.

Now in its third year, the annual BID Spring Clean works to tackle unwanted mess and graffiti across the city centre, as part of the BID’s project to make Sheffield a cleaner pace to live, work and play in.

Whilst the BID’s Clean Team continues to offer a free graffiti removal service to its levy payers throughout the year, the BID Spring Clean is an annual initiative which will actively target city centre grot spots with a purge on graffiti affecting all commercial properties in the BID area.

As well as graffiti removal, the BID provides security and lighting reviews, subsidised anti-graffiti coatings and organise crime prevention visits through the BID-funded police sergeant Matthew Burdett, to help prevent graffiti in the city centre.

To tackle areas that are consistently retagged, the BID can deploy high-tech mobile cameras for surveillance, and details of all graffiti reported to the BID are provided to South Yorkshire Police to assist future prosecutions. The BID also seeks permanent permissions from landlords so that graffiti can be removed quickly.

Landlords and tenants of private commercial properties in the city centre affected by graffiti, can add these to the BID Spring Clean schedule, free of charge, by emailing
