Our schedule of road sweeping across Renfrewshire

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

Keeping our roadside drains and gullies clear and free of litter is important.

Why 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.
