Our 30-person Downtown BIZ Enviro-Team helps keep the downtown clean and looking great. The Enviro-Team members pick up litter, water flowers, remove graffiti, remove posters, and clean downtown’s sidewalks every day. Starting at 6:30 in the morning, sidewalk machines sweep and wash downtown, and in the winter two snow plows clear major sidewalks of ice and light snow. The Enviro-Team also picks up more than 5,000 bags of litter every year!
The team includes:
- 2-person daily bus shelter cleaning crew
- 5-person weekend summer cleaning crew
- 2-person evening shift litter (daily)
- 2-person dedicated graffiti removal team
- 2-person flower watering team
- 2-person sidewalk sweeper team (summer) / sidewalk snow removal team (winter)
- 4-person promotions crew (summer)
- 2 Clean Team Supervisors and 1 Maintenance Coordinator
- Two deluxe sidewalk sweepers
- Two snow plows/sweepers
- Watering carts and graffiti removal carts
The City and Siloam Mission’s Mission: Off the Streets Team (MOST) add to the clean-and-green efforts.
Graffiti Removal Services
Two Clean Team members are dedicated to fighting graffiti year round in our downtown. They pressure wash buildings and match paint samples to remove tags and keep downtown looking great. With these staff, the BIZ is able to maintain a positive impression of downtown Winnipeg.
The BIZ recognizes that a lot of graffiti and litter lead to perceptions that an area is not safe. The mere presence of graffiti and litter often lead to more graffiti and litter, which encourages vandalism and even crime, because it sends a message that an area is not well-cared for and no one is looking after the neighbourhood. Through our Enviro-Team members and many programs, the BIZ sends the message that we are taking care of our downtown.
