SMART began operating in 2012 after being ratified by the Queen’s Alma Mater Society Assembly in 2011. Throughout the summer months, SMART focuses on lawn care and garbage removal for contracted clients. As students begin to arrive in the fall, SMART expands its role in ensuring that the University District is clean and safe by hosting more frequent community clean-ups.
SMART ensures that the University District remains clean and well maintained through regular community clean-ups between the months of May and November, free of charge. After large events such as Orientation Week, Homecoming, and St. Patrick’s Day, SMART performs a wide-spread clean-up to ensure that the cleanliness of the neighbourhood is maintained.
Our mandate is not to build profit, but rather to contribute to the development of the University District. All of our prices are simply a recovery of operating costs.
