The DVBA Clean Team

The DVBA’s Clean Team complements the City’s efforts to keep our Downtown clean. They are on duty from 8 am until 4 pm every weekday. They clean, safely dispose of drug paraphernalia, and remove graffiti from private properties in downtown Victoria.

In 2017 alone, The Clean Team:

  • Collected 32,400 lbs of litter
  • Safely disposed of 3271 needles
  • Removed 6400 graffiti tags

Team members also supervise community work service placements of individuals sentenced through the Victoria Integrated Court. Primarily composed of people who have, or have had, barriers to employment, the Clean Team has a sensitivity and understanding that informs where drug paraphernalia may be found, where graffiti tags are, and where people may be camping.
