Neat, clean and sanitary. That is how we believe our city should feel, always. Uptown Saint John BIA employs a two-person “Clean Crew” that moves throughout the city to paint, weed, sweep and remove debris, graffiti and more. They go above and beyond with the pressure washing of sidewalks, bus stop terminals, and stocking doggie waste bag dispensers for our pet loving residents.
One of the most satisfying aspects of pressure washing is to instantly uncover the natural beauty of sidewalks, buildings, patios and select infrastructure such as bus shelters and awnings. While most times a thorough spray will do, others require a much deeper clean. Such is the case with bus shelters. Uptown Saint John BIA often uses a special disinfectant to help keep these shelters as safe and sanitary as possible.
Uptown Saint John BIA area is rich with culture and history. Yet although we have a large, talented arts community, sometimes it’s better left for our galleries. Graffiti removal services add a layer of value to our business community. Keeping Uptown streets, poles and buildings free of graffiti is a matter of civic pride, and Uptown Saint John BIA is pleased to offer this service.
As part of our mandate of Clean and Safe Streets, Uptown Saint John BIA takes extra care in ensuring our sidewalks look pristine and are safe for all foot traffic. As such, you will often see your BIA out and about with an industrial sidewalk vacuum. Just one of the many ways Uptown Saint John BIA works to augment city services.
Greenspace is beautiful, but not when it’s overrun by weeds. In an effort to make our city shine brightly and highlight the many flowers, potted plants and trees, Uptown Saint John BIA removes weeds from around the city. And not just in flower beds, but also those that grow near or beside sidewalks and medians. Keeping the Uptown core tidy, neat and weed-free is our pleasure.

Winter is often challenging for pedestrians. Inclement weather can take an icy toll on sidewalks, entrances and steps leading to our member businesses. In an effort to keep these areas clear, Uptown Saint John BIA distributes sand boxes throughout the city each winter. These boxes are re-filled regularly, and scoops are given to the businesses to use at their discretion.
