Focus on: Road sweeping

As part of the Team Up to Clean Up campaign, we have increased mechanical sweeping activity around Renfrewshire covering all geographical areas to ensure our streets are cleaner.

Keeping our roadside drains and gullies clear and free of litter is important and the community can help by keeping vehicles away from the roadside wherever possible.

The programme below shows where our road sweepers will be and when they'll be in your community.

Daily

The above is an indication only - days of operation may fluctuate depending on issues found when sweeping

Residents in the above mentioned areas area asked to, where possible, keep vehicles off the street to allow increased access and more effective roadside sweeping which will improve the local environment.

Why do we undertake sweeping of road edges?

Cleaning the road edges (gullies) is predominantly undertaken by a large mechanical sweeper which brushes and lifts items of litter, detritus, grit and other loose material.

This improves both the functioning of the gully and the appearance, allowing an increased flow of water along the kerb edge into roadside gully pots.

The sweeping consists of vacuuming waste from any gully, inspecting the health of the drain before carrying out high pressure water jetting to remove any remaining obstructions.
