NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The French Quarter Management District (FQMD) is pleased to announce the launch of the Keep the neighborhood clean Campaign.

The Keep the Quarter Clean campaign builds on the City of New Orleans’ desire to Clean NOLA and the Governor’s campaign to Keep Louisiana Beautiful. While businesses and residents had undertaken hard work to refresh their facades, deep clean and generally beautify their properties during the 2020 COVID-19 shutdown, the neighborhood is again in need of a cleanup. improved. The intention of the program is to maintain a higher standard of cleanliness, where all stakeholders feel a sense of ownership in promoting the Keep the Quarter Clean campaign and driving a greater level of waste reduction and sanitation among our visitors, residents, businesses and government agencies providing services in the French Quarter.
