The friendly Rosslyn Ambassadors work hard, five days a week to keep the sidewalks and pedestrian corridors within the 17-block BID boundaries clean by picking up litter, pulling weeds and removing graffiti and illegal signage from the public right-of-way. In 2015 our Ambassador team removed 121,384 pounds of litter and collected 19,721 pounds of recycled material which they delivered to the Arlington recycling center.
Wearing purple uniforms, the Ambassadors have a welcomed presence on the streets of Rosslyn, providing hospitality services that include giving easy-to-follow directions, recommending things to see and do, answering questions and identifying customer service opportunities, such as carrying packages or holding a door.
During the winter, the ten-member team engages in snow and ice removal from key areas to supplement Arlington County efforts and in summer months, they power wash the sidewalks throughout the district.
Our Ambassador team works Monday through Friday 7:00am-7:30pm. If you have comments about the Ambassador program you would like to share, please do so here.
