The services of the NoMa BID Clean Team include:

Trash and Litter Removal:
The NoMa BID provides public trash receptacles throughout the neighborhood, and picks up the trash from those bins daily. In addition, the Clean Team works tirelessly to keep the sidewalks and public spaces welcoming and free of litter and graffiti.

  • You can see the Clean Team walking on their daily routes placing trash from the public space into trash bags. The NoMa Clean Team truck retrieves the full trash bags from the sidewalks throughout the day.
