Flyers on Poles
To keep a clean appearance in our downtown core the City regularly installs sheathing (Tyvek) on downtown poles to place event and show posters on. The arts community, area businesses, and other interested parties should take notice that the removal of the Tyvek occurs on the 3rd Monday of each month (except February, April & December and holidays).
Tyvek will be removed and replaced from poles in 2013 on the following dates:
- January 21st
- March 18th
- May 21st
- June 17th
- July 15th
- August 19th
- September 16th
- October 21st
- November 18th
Advertisers should also note that the removal and replacement of the Tyvek may take more than one day and the schedule may be delayed by adverse weather conditions.
Help us eliminate litter by making sure that your posters are securely attached and by using only the designated poles which have Tyvek attached to them.
This program is sponsored jointly by The Downtown Development Commission, Newfoundland Power and The City of St. John's.

In 1991 the City of St. John's established St. John's Clean & Beautiful as the lead agency to promote a clean and beautiful city. Today the City of St. John's remains a major sponsor of the organization.
Among other things, St. John's Clean & Beautiful conducts 'Take Pride, Take Action', an annual five week campaign that runs from May 15th to June 15th that is designed to encourage citizens to organize litter clean-ups on their streets, in their neighbourhoods, on school grounds and surrounding areas.
We encourage you to participate in Take Pride, Take Action and to clean up your own area and the City as a whole. Get in touch with Karen Hickman with St. John’s Clean & Beautiful by calling 570-0350.
Street cleaning removes dirt and debris from City streets to provide an aesthetically pleasing and healthy environment for City residents and visitors.
