Gum Remover Picture.jpg

The Downtown Inc Clean-Up Crew is made possible through a partnership with the York County Solid Waste Authority. The Clean-Up Crew was formed in 2010 as a response to recommendations in the Roger Brooks’ York Plan.

Though size varies by season, the Clean-Up Crew comprises of 2-5 members and operates from 10:00am to 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, deployed daily to different zones within the Central Business District. In addition to removing litter from our downtown, the crew also utilizes a Karcher gum remover (seen in the image to the right), providing a safe, environmentally friendly way to help remove gum stains from our downtown’s sidewalks.

Through our partnerships, Downtown Inc’s Clean-Up Crew works closely with the City of York Public Works department to keep the downtown area litter free. If you ever see them downtown, feel free to join us in thanking them for helping to keep our downtown clean, beautiful, and thriving!
