Description

Residential streets are swept six times a year, while major streets are swept once a month. This schedule allows for the regular sweeping of many of the City's prized bicycle facilities, located both on residential and major streets.
Austin Resource Recovery cannot sweep streets without curbs, but litter is periodically picked up by hand from these streets.
The street sweeping system is designed to clean the gutters and prevent automotive fluids and other contaminants from polluting Austin's creeks and waterways. Clean streets provide a healthy, safe and attractive environment for all users of the roadway. City street sweeping crews remove more than 6,200 tons of trash and debris from roadways each year; that's the equivalent of 4,150 average-sized cars!
