Let’s Take Pride in our CBD & Keep our Shop Fronts Clean. Lismore City Council will be undertaking more cleaning and it would be great if you can also help. Here are a few helpful tips that you might find useful:

  1. Ensure your Public Liability Insurance covers the footpath area and front of your shop.
  2. Take reasonable care when cleaning.
  3. Don’t clean during trading hours or busy times.
  4. Take care with any materials used for cleaning i.e. make sure materials are environmentally friendly and non toxic or just use clean water.
  5. When cleaning make sure you don’t create a nuisance to pedestrians or surrounding shops.

Council will be undertaking more cleaning as follows:

  1. Footpath Sweeping - 6 days per week (not on Tuesday) commencing 4:30am to 9am.
  2. Pressure cleaning of the CBD hotspot triangle on a quarterly basis.
  3. (Corner of Keen and Woodlark streets fronting food premises)
  4. Bin cleaning to be carried out once per week during normal business hours.
  5. Butt Bins cleaned and emptied once per fortnight.
  6. Gum removal to be carried out Tuesday mornings.
  7. Additional bin to be placed fronting the Night Owl in Woodlark Street.
  8. Additional bin to be placed between Lismore Square and the CBD.

Council Staff are also investigating new technology for footpath sweeping and footpath scrubbing.
