I bet you haven’t given much thought about the street sweeper trucks that keep your city of Corona neighborhood streets clean or the value they have to the curb appeal of our community. These unrecognized heroes are working hard to make our streets clean and give us quality of life within our neighborhoods. Without them, our streets would be full of unhealthy garbage, harmful debris and general nastiness.
“My son just loves to watch them sweep the street! It’s a regular thing we do every Wednesday-watch them sweep! After the trucks are gone, my son loves to run down to the curb and see how clean the gutter is!” said Anne Crain, a Corona resident.
Did you know that the street sweeper trucks operate on a 3 part system? First, they use mist water to control the dust, then the brush sweeps the debris into a hopper while a vacuum sucks up the debris into the truck.
The streets of the city of Corona are swept by a contracted company named Clean Sweep Environmental. They comply within the South Coast Air Quality Management District and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System requirements. All of the debris picked up from the street sweeper trucks are required to be taken to the recycler.
The street sweepers do have a set schedule and they will visit your area on the same days every week. Click here for your street sweeping schedule.
Here are a few things you can do to help insure a good swept street:
1. Move your vehicle. That is easy enough right?
2. Remove large debris. The street sweeper trucks are not designed to pick up large debris. We can all help beautify our communities by picking up after ourselves and removing trash.
3. Remove odd obstacles from the gutter line such as hoses, trash cans, balls etc.
