    The Street Sweeper will be coming to your Neighborhood

    October 30th, 2019

    Please have all vehicles off the streets when the sweeper is in your neighborhood.  The sweeper has a difficult time cleaning all the debris from the street when maneuvering around parked vehicles. Thank you!

    Street sweeping is one of the most cost-effective ways used to remove sediment, metals, petroleum products, trash, and vegetation that accumulates on streets, construction sites and parking lots.  If these toxins are not removed, they will make their way into the storm drains and into our streams and waterways.  Keeping the storm drains clear not only helps to mitigate water pollution but also reduces the likelihood of flooding during heavy rain. If you have any questions, contact dschwalbe@cityofcarver.com
