• street cleaning


Keeping our streets clean and safe is central to OCD's mission and is the traditional foundation of its programming. OCD provides:

  • A 10-worker street and sidewalk cleaning crew -- deployed every day, in all weather conditions -- for manual and mechanical sidewalk sweeping
  • Monthly sidewalk power-washing and removal of illegal trash, posters and stickers from public property
  • Graffiti removal from commercial buildings and residences, in cooperation with the city's Graffiti Abatement Team
  • More Big Belly trash compactors and recycling units to reduce litter


In 2012, OCD's cleaning crew gathered 7,400 bags of trash and removed 187 graffiti tags and stickers.
