Street Sweeping

Street sweeping is an important tool to keep debris and trash from entering our lakes.  We operate six state-of-the art street sweepers.  On average, these street sweepers clean almost 17,000 miles of curbed streets and collect approximately 2,265 tons of materials every year that would otherwise end up in the lakes. Street sweepers are designed to remove trash and debris from City streets and help 

prevent pollution from entering our lakes which supports the notion that “Every Curb Is a Shoreline”.   Our goal is to sweep each curbed street with in the city twice a month.
