New Cleaning Contractor for the U District
The UDP has selected Elm Grove as the new cleaning company for the North and South Cleaning Areas starting on September 1. You will see Elm Grove staff working in the same purple UDP vests our Ambassadors and Beautification team members wear. We appreciate the seventeen years that Recology provided neighborhood cleaning services.
Elm Grove will provide the following services:
Seven day a week cleaning of the South Cleaning Area
Two day a week cleaning of the North Cleaning Area
Litter and leaf removal for sidewalks and streets
Graffiti on a case-by-case basis
Removal of stickers and illegal postings
24-hour biohazard removal (human waste pickup and body fluid cleanup). To report a biohazard, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-371-4486. Elm Grove is trained to ensure safe disposal of these dangerous items.
8 hours of pressure washing per month throughout the cleaning areas as scheduled by our office; call Marcus Johnson at (206) 547-4417 to schedule additional pressure washing for a fee
Snow removal and salt application
Elm Grove has worked on other cleaning jobs in the U District since 2017. Owner Oliver Campos says, “We’re excited to be working in the U District again. It’s a great atmosphere.” Campos stresses the availability of the Elm Grove team: “We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365. We can dispatch any time.”
To learn more about the cleaning services within the BIA Cleaning Areas, contact Marcus Johnson by phone (206) 547-4417 or by email email@example.com. Anyone is welcome to join the U District Partnership on our monthly BIA Walk where we walk the cleaning area with our contractor and other stakeholders. We meet at the UDP office (4507 University Way NE, Suite 209) on the third Friday of the month at 9:00 am.
