Benefits of Road Sweeping

Road sweepers are viewed as an essential piece of machinery for many construction companies and local authorities. Despite their slow speed, road users appreciate the need to keep our roads safe and useable.

Road sweeping has many benefits including:

  • Reducing Breakdowns
    Shards of glass, stray screws or debris are common causes for blown or damaged tyres and car breakdowns. By ensuring regular use of road sweepers it can reduce accidents on our busy roads.
  • Environment protection
    Roadside rubbish can be dangerous and life threatening for wildlife who eat or get caught in plastic and discarded waste. Road sweeping will remove discarded rubbish and fly tipping at the road side, protecting unsuspecting animals from the waste.
  • Preventing Flooding
    When roadside guttering becomes clogged with rubbish or soil, it can affect the drainage and access to the sewers leading to overspill impacting nearby fields, homes and wildlife. Flooding on the roads is not only dangerous for motorists, it can also be detrimental to the environment.

Booking a road sweeper

Whether it is an emergency clean-up operation or regular maintenance, our road sweepers are dual sweep machines which gives us the option of sweeping at either side and they have wire brushes to remove stubborn ground in dirt. Water is applied to the road to dampen the dust to reduce pollution.

When you book a road sweeping service we will enquire where the job is, the type of debris to be cleared and an idea of quantity to clean.

Waste collected via road sweepers should only be disposed at sites that are authorised to receive that type of waste. RJC have the correct licenses and certification to ensure the correct disposal of all waste. We also seek to recover reusable materials and minimise waste going to landfill.

Road sweepers can be hired on a one-off basis or on a regular contract. We hire out road sweeping services across the Yorkshire district including Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Harrogate, York, Sheffield.
