Why is thorough street cleaning important to the well-being
of the community?
|When vehicles drive on our streets the tires "kick up"
dirt and dust that has settled on the roadway. The dust and
dirt are called particulates and are a form of air
pollution. Street sweeping collects the particulates and
prevents them from becoming airborne. Sweeping up the dust
and dirt also helps keep gutters and storm drains free of
debris, which allows rain water to flow freely down the
storm drain. Plugged up storm drains can lead to flooding
and standing water after a storm. Street sweeping also keeps the City of Mesa neighborhood
streets clean and neat for all residents to travel and
What can residents do to help facilitate successful sweeping
- Trim trees and vegetation to the required heights
allowing high profile vehicles to pass under without damage
to vehicles and trees.
- Remove trash, recycle and green waste barrels from the
street after service.
- Limit vehicles parked on the street by parking in
driveways and other designated parking areas.
Prevent tree encroachment
- Street sweepers cannot sweep under trees that hang
lower than 14 feet.
- Debris not picked up by street sweepers can
cause storm drain blockages.
- Low hanging limbs can cause damage to the street
sweeper and other high profile vehicles.
