Sussex Police is supporting an initiative by Cityclean and telecommunications giant, Virgin Media, to keep all their street side boxes free of graffiti.
Brighton & Hove City Council is asking businesses that have a box directly outside their property to think about 'adopting a box'. Adopting one of these boxes would give businesses the ability to keep the area around their property as clean and tidy as the business itself.
Research shows that if graffiti is removed quickly, it is less likely to occur in future. Tackling graffiti as soon as it appears is the aim of the Council’s 'adopt-a-box' scheme. Businesses can 'adopt' one of Virgin Media’s 2,000 communications boxes to keep an eye on it and keep it free from graffiti. Anyone wishing to join the scheme will be given free paint and materials, help and advice and an 'adoption' certificate.
Neal Walshe, spokesperson for Virgin Media said,'We are delighted to be working with Brighton & Hove City Council to combat the anti-social menace of graffiti. We are confident that our joint efforts will result in a significant improvement in the local environment.'
