There are three sweepers; one a medium road sweeper and two smaller sweepers that we use to regularly clean the roads, car parks and pavements around the borough.
Shopping areas are swept daily by our sweeper teams from before the morning commute.
Main roads are cleansed every week and minor roads are swept by wards and cleaned ward by ward. Where cars are parked, it is not always possible to sweep or cleanse around them, in particular where there is a risk of damage to the parked car. We will look to add them to our deep cleanse schedule.
All road sweepers are fitted with a chemical sprayer to enable them to spray weeds after they have swept roads and pavements.
