Our Maintenance Ambassadors routinely use pressure washers to address reports of unsanitary waste throughout the Downtown Improvement District.
Our Maintenance Ambassadors use weed whackers to cut down invasive species on downtown properties, and a non-toxic solution to keep them at bay.
Our Maintenance Ambassadors work closely with the Anchorage Police Department to keep track of reports of graffiti. Our Maintenance Ambassadors are also known for their prompt responses to reports of graffiti, typically cleaning graffiti up in no more than 24 hours after a report is made.
In addition to routine trash pick-up and disposal duties throughout the Downtown Improvement District, our Maintenance Ambassadors are available to dispose of unsightly trash and hazardous waste at the request of downtown business owners. (Please note: trash and waste that is the result of daily business proceedings is the business’ responsibility to dispose of, and is not part of our Maintenance Ambassadors’ daily beautification tasks.)
Snow removal services include plowing, shoveling, ice melt and sweeping. We do not provide snow removal off site. You must have an area available on site to pile snow. Learn more here.
ADP sells ice melt for a price you can’t beat: $16.99 a bag! Learn more here.
Available in summer and fall, our Maintenance Ambassadors can help downtown businesses maintain internal cleanliness through assisting with gravel sweeping and disposal.
