With smart, innovative and attractive solutions, we improve the lives of urban citizens in Sweden. Municipalities offers well-maintained street furniture of high quality and stylish design. Today, JCDecaux has installed approximately 9 000 street furniture in the country distributed among others on 3000 weather protection, 70 fully automatic toilets, 1500 city information boards and over 3000 bins. Everything is funded by advertising and doesn't cost the taxpayer a penny.
JCDecaux's business concept is to provide advertising-financed street furniture such as glazed weather shelters, public toilets, city information, litter bins, loaner bike systems and much more, free of charge, to major cities around the world. Investment, maintenance and prompt action against all forms of vandalism for this street furniture is always part of JCDecaux's commitment to the cities we work with.

Our street furniture is designed to give cities, transport hubs and commercial centres a harmonious and modern appearance.
