Clean Team

At 6 a.m. each day, before the rest of downtown is moving, our 65 Clean Team members hit the streets to clean sidewalks and alleyways in six neighborhoods within the Metropolitan Improvement District.  Last year, these ambassadors removed more than 45,000 graffiti tags and more than 970,000 gallons of trash across 285 square blocks of downtown. In 2016, with support and funding from MID ratepayers, we extended our hours of service and added specialized equipment, including an all-terrain litter vacuum to wash and vacuum sidewalks.

Clean Team Ambassador of the Month

Lawrence Cottle

Employees like Lawrence Cottle are the reason our ambassadors have a reputation for high standards and even higher quality service. His exemplary work has earned multiple accolades from downtown ratepayers, including:

  • “He is fantastic at what he does; he goes above and beyond expectations.”
  • “Lawrence always checks in with us to make sure we are satisfied. We really appreciate his dedication.”
  • “We really appreciate his dedication and perseverance.”

Recently, Lawrence and another employee volunteered to clock in before their scheduled morning shift to help clean an area of heavy trash and debris in a high traffic zone. Thanks to them, the task was completed quickly and efficiently. Lawrence is originally from Chicago, and in his spare time likes to read his bible and help those less fortunate than him.

Please join us in congratulating Lawrence  as our Clean Team employee of the month.
