Street Sweeping and Spring Clean-Up>
Street sweeping gets underway in early spring to clean all Town streets of sand, and other debris deposited during the winter months.
Spring street sweeping helps protect the environment by preventing pollutants from entering the storm sewer system and improves cleanliness and aesthetics of Town streets and parking lots. Fall sweeping is done to ensure that leaves do not block storm water from entering the systems catch basins to clear water from the streets.
Here are some safety precautions you should take when travelling near street sweepers:
- Make sure to keep a safe distance between you and the sweeper at all times;
- Try to avoid maneuvering around sweeper trucks; move off to the side of the road until you are sure it is safe to continue;
- Do not ride, run or play near the sweeper truck and keep children a safe distance away from the sweeper;
- Sweeper trucks move slowly sometimes causing delays, please be patient.
The Town of Prescott prides itself on keeping our streets clean, and we appreciate your cooperation.
