At Downtown Dallas, Inc., we work every day to improve the quality of life for everyone in Downtown Dallas, and that means keeping our streets maintained to the highest of standards.
That’s why we fund the Downtown Clean Team, a group of 12 full-time employees, dedicated seven days a week to keeping the Downtown streets and sidewalks clean by picking up litter, removing graffiti, and assisting with many public improvement projects in Downtown Dallas.
The Clean Team removes more than 3,000 pieces of graffiti from public spaces and more than 3,000 cubic yards of litter from Downtown streets each year. That’s roughly 20 tractor-trailer loads of trash. That means they collect up to 3 pickup trucks of trash every day!
While two Clean Team members focus specifically on parks, the Clean Team also supports special events and initiatives throughout Downtown.
Other Clean Team programs include:
- Mowing and weed removal
- Tree planting, pruning, and fertilization
- Tree well repairs and maintenance
- High-pressure sidewalk washing
- Bench and bike rack repair and cleaning
- Trash container repairs and replacements
