Street Cleaning

Street Cleaning

Several different services help ensure clean city streets.

Sweeping
Street sweepers remove trash from paved streets that have curbs and gutters, in order to minimize its impact on storm water systems.

Flushing
High-pressure streams of water are used to move debris to the curb so sweepers can remove it. Service is available to private developers for a fee.

Island Cleaning
Trucks collect trash and other debris on islands, medians and underpasses.

Load-All Truck
Load-all trucks transport trash to the City landfill, which allows sweepers to continue cleaning with minimal lost time for travel. They also remove spills, clean illegal dumps along right-of-ways, and pick up large dead animals.
