Street Sweeping

Benefits of Cleaning Our Streets

Street sweeping provides two benefits. The first benefit is the collection and removal of paper, leaves and other debris that collect in the gutters. If left on our roadways, these materials can block stormwater facilities and cause localized flooding during heavy rains. The second benefit of street sweeping is that it removes metal particles and other hazardous wastes left by passing vehicles.

Street Sweeping Schedule

The sweeper cleans streets weekly during the spring, summer and fall seasons. The spring starting date and fall ending date is determined by weather and local temperatures.
