Keeping Your Community Clean, Healthy and Safe

September 18, 2017

If you’re in charge of cleaning and maintaining the streets in your community, you’re probably always looking for smarter and more efficient ways to get the job done. When you equip yourself with the right equipment and tools, you can get more done and provide a safer and healthier environment for your citizens.
 
One way to keep your streets clean is to use a professional-grade Street Sweeper. A Street Sweeper is designed to remove maximum dirt, grime and debris in a safe and reliable manner and has the features and maneuverability to handle a variety of road configurations and conditions.
 
Sweeping your streets isn't just for appearance reasons. When dirt and debris build up in your streets, gutters and curbs, there's a risk to the general public:
  • Sewers and drains blocked by leaves, garbage and other dirt can pose a flood risk.
  • Standing water and dirt is a breeding ground for insects, mold and bacteria.
  • Loose garbage, mud and plant waste can make roadways and crosswalks slippery.
  • Unclean city streets create an overall negative feeling and impression for citizens.
  • Certain types of debris, such as metal and broken glass, can be a danger to pedestrians.
Instead of letting the problem get out of hand, add a Street Sweeper truck to your fleet and perform regular street sweeping. Start with the worst areas and get them back into an acceptable level of cleanliness. Everyone in your community will notice and benefit from a healthier and safer environment.
 
And once your streets have been cleaned, all it takes is a regular maintenance plan to keep them that way. Most communities find that weekly street sweeping removes dirt and garbage before it can build up and start to cause health and safety issues.
 

Everyone Benefits

 Keeping your streets clean also creates a positive impression of your communities and neighborhoods and can inspire people to do their part to keep the streets clean for everyone. Consider adding garbage cans and emptying them regularly. You can also share information on the risks of dumping waste and garbage in the streets and educate people in your community on how to properly dispose of all types of home, garden and yard waste.
