Our experienced broombusters also cut in any public area, street or park near where they live or where they see the need.  When other areas, such as a developers’ property, ask for our assistance we then hold group cuts to get the job done!  Please contact Nancy Lutes for more information on broom cuts.

IN 2021:  Between April 29 and May 29, 2021, Nanaimo Broombusters worked on Linley Gyro park, Pipers Lagoon, Lotus Pinnatus Park, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Bowen Park, as well as countless neighborhood streets.  A separate crew worked on District 68 school properties.  Another crew worked on the Nanaimo Parkway trail.  In previous years, Broombusters also worked on 3rd Street Park, and many other places.

Make plans for cut broom removal before you cut!  Unfortunately, MOTI is not able to remove broom cut on the highways.  If you contact Broombusters in advance, sometimes we can help.  At the very least, we can offer advice on cut broom disposal.  To be a Broombuster, contact Broombusters first!  Cut at your own risk. Be safe and have fun!
