Benefits of Professional Street Sweeping
Safety is the primary concern for the traveling public and was the force behind effecting municipal cleaning. Street gutters tend to be a resting place for a variety of debris. Removal of debris lessens the opportunity of skids and collisions, and also allows drivers to safely judge distance to curbs and roadway edges. Road workers are hazardous on roadsides.
A less apparent but critical benefit of street sweeping is the removal of metal particles and other hazardous waste products left by passing vehicles or discarded trash. Some particles bond to other larger debris that may release unhealthy emissions into the air.
