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 2018 on the following dates:
- January 15
- March 19
- May 22 (Tuesday)
- June 18
- July 16
- August 20
- September 17
- October 15
- November 19
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 of the now renamed Clean St. John’s.
Among other things, Clean St. John’s hosts an annual campaign that runs in May and June that encourages citizens to organize litter clean-ups on their streets, in their neighbourhoods, on school grounds and surrounding areas.
We encourage you to participate and to clean up your own area and the City as a whole. Get in touch with Clean St. John’s by calling 570-0350 emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or the contact form on their webpage.
Street cleaning removes dirt and debris from City streets to provide an aesthetically pleasing and healthy environment for City residents and visitors.
