DublinTown works to ensure that visitors and shoppers are provided with a positive impression of the city. A clean and pleasant environment has a subliminally positive effect on shoppers, while dirty, grimy streets are an active turn off for consumers and decrease footfall.
We provide Christmas Lights for the city centre and currently light almost 30 streets during the festive season.
We also provide flower planters and hanging baskets for many of the streets in the DublinTown area. These planters bring a splash of colour to the streets all year round and help to create a bright and welcoming environment.
Services to DublinTown members includes a Rapid Response Cleaning Crew (Daytime 8am – 5pm) and a Night Cleaning Crew (8pm – 4am). This cleaning service includes the removal of graffiti from business premises.
International research has shown that graffiti serves as an invitation for antisocial behaviour and crime. When we first began removing graffiti from the city centre there was over 3,000 m2 of graffiti on business premises throughout the city. We continue to remove graffiti regularly and we removed approximately 20,000 sq m in 2016 and 18,000 sq m in 2015 – combined for just those two years that’s 3 times the size of the pitch at Croke Park! This demonstrates the success of the graffiti removal programme.
To report graffiti on your premises please contact us 7 days on email@example.com or call 01 6334680.
DublinTown provides a rapid response cleaning service to our members. The purpose of this service is to ensure that any dangerous or unsanitary waste is removed from the BID area within an hour of it being reported. We also provide additional cleaning for lanes and secondary streets to ensure that they maintain an acceptable level of cleanliness.
The cleaning carried out by DublinTown is in addition to that provided by Dublin City Council (DCC) who is responsible for cleanliness levels in the city centre. We have put an agreement in place with DCC which outlines the minimum amount of cleaning that must take place in the DublinTown area. We monitor this baseline agreement and ensure it is delivered.
To report a cleaning or waste issue call the office on 01 633 4680, our office is open seven days a week from 8am to 5pm. We also operate an out of hours Evening Crew that operate from Thursday – Sunday 8pm to 4am. To report an issue during these hours call 085 8673073.
