Keeping our sidewalks and streets clean is a District priority. Our Clean Team scours the district seven days a week, twelve hours a day to ensure that our neighborhood remains clean and attractive.
Supplementing the services provided by the Metro Departments of PublicWorks, our crews sweep the sidewalks and alleys every day starting at 7:00 AM. They work until 10:00 PM Monday through Saturday, and until 3:30 PM on Sunday. After events like Thunder Over Louisville the Clean Team may work overtime.
The clean team also removes illegal signage and flyers and removes graffiti from property in the district.
During the spring and summer months, the clean team sprays weeds on sidewalks in the district and removes the dead remnants.
