Union Square to receive holiday cleaning

If you’re going to have a lot of people over for the holidays, it’s probably best to clean up the front yard before their arrival.

Union Square is about to receive a major cleaning in preparation for a glut of holiday shoppers. Between Nov. 19 and Nov. 25, volunteers and staff with the Department of Public Works will pick up litter, care for trees, paint trash receptacles and remove graffiti in the area.

Crews will also steam clean, repair and repaint curbs as part of an effort to provide the central shopping district an air of holiday cleanliness, DPW said.

They will also help clean up and decorate Hallidie Plaza, it said.

Along with DPW, the Market Street Association, Union Square Association and Union Square Business Improvement District are contributing to the cleanup effort.

Want to help in the so-called Holiday Sweep? On Nov. 19, meet at the lower level of Hallidie Plaza (near Muni and BART stations)between noon and 4 p.m. to offer a helping hand in the cleanup effort. Also, you can email volunteer@sfdpw.org for more details.
