Cleaning by the Numbers – 2019 in Review
In 2019, the SCSSD Cleaning Team worked over 12,520 hours, collecting 348,150 pounds of litter, leaves, and debris. That’s equivalent to over 174 tons! Throughout the year, the crew removed curbside weeds from all District streets, assisted neighbors with the pickup of bulk leaves, and collected 81 truckloads of fallen tree branches. Also in 2019, SCSSD submitted 39 “City 311” requests for various topics, and also removed 1,055 illegal signs/posters throughout the District. The SCSSD Cleaning Team continues to routinely check the 12 dog waste stations located throughout the District three times per week, adding small pick-up bags and changing out trash can liners as needed.
