Cleaning by the Numbers – 2021 in Review
Despite continued challenges from the ongoing pandemic, the SCSSD Cleaning Team had a very productive 2021, working over 9,450 hours and collecting 321,840 pounds (161 tons) of litter, leaves, and debris. Stated differently, the Cleaning Team collected 4,096 bags of litter and 9,666 bags of leaves and debris! In addition, the crew removed curbside weeds from all District streets, assisted neighbors with the pickup of bulk leaves, and collected 30 truckloads of fallen tree branches. Also, in 2021, SCSSD submitted 49 “City 311” requests for various topics, and removed 633 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.
