Additional street cleaning

Brixton BID provides 80 days of additional cleaning annually to keep our streets clean. We are also working on initiatives and campaigns to tackle street urination.

Greening

A clean and healthy environment is important for everyone, but we know that it is crucial to the success and prosperity of businesses, that’s why Brixton BID invest in local greening projects including Brixton Orchard and the Barrier Garden.
