Lot Sweeping
Street sweeping involves the use of specialized equipment to remove litter, loose gravel, soil, pet waste, vehicle debris and pollutants, dust, de-icing chemicals, and industrial debris from road surfaces. Street sweeping equipment can consist of a truck-like vehicle equipped with multiple brushes and various instruments to effectively do the job right.
When done regularly, street sweeping can remove 50 - 90% of street pollutants that potentially can enter surface water through storm sewers. Street sweeping will also make road surfaces less slick in light rains, improve aesthetics by removing litter, and control pollutants which can be captured by the equipment.
