The Clean Team

 

The Clean Team A partnership between the West End Business Improvement Association  and Gordon Neighbourhood House, the Clean Team works on Davie, Denman, and Robson streets performing general commercial sidewalk/street cleaning, 3-1-1 illegal dumping reports, graffiti removal, power washing and leaf removal, as well as poster and sticker removal.

An essential part of the Clean Team’s work involves the recording and tracking of their findings in the form of a litter audit. This information will be used towards working with the community to create a long-term strategy for keeping our streets litter-free. The ultimate goal of the Clean Team, therefore, is litter prevention.

Keep an eye out for the Clean Team and be sure to say hi!
