Street cleaning: More than just cleanliness

Cleanliness, safety and sustainability — street cleaning offers more than you think. Find out how Multitransport makes this difference on our roads every day.


Imagine a city without clean roads — littered with trash, leaves, and trash. This image would not only be unpleasant to the eye, but would also be dangerous for the community and the environment. Street cleaning is much more than just removing trash. It is an essential service that contributes to the safety, aesthetics and health of our cities and communities. In this article, we dive deep into the world of street cleaning to understand its importance, challenges, and evolution over the years. One thing quickly becomes clear: A clean street scene is no coincidence, but the result of hard work, modern technology and a high level of awareness of the environment and the common good.

Important aspects of street cleaning

Street cleaning goes far beyond simply sweeping the road. It is a comprehensive process aimed at keeping our transport routes safe, clean and in good condition. Here are some of the most important aspects that need to be considered when cleaning the street:

Removal of rubbish:

This is probably the most obvious aspect of street cleaning. Rubbish is constantly entering the streets due to wind, pedestrians or from vehicles. This must be collected and disposed of regularly to keep roads clean and prevent clogged drains.

Handling hazardous substances:

Accidents or leaks can result in hazardous substances such as oil, gasoline, or chemicals entering the road. Such substances must be removed quickly and professionally to prevent environmental damage and slipping risks.

Sweeping and vacuuming:

Modern street cleaning vehicles are equipped with sweeping brushes and suction systems that efficiently remove dirt, dust and other debris from the road. This helps not only to keep the road clean, but also to extend the life of the road surface.

Seasonal challenges:

Foliage in autumn: Fallen leaves can make roads and sidewalks slippery and clog drains. It must be collected and disposed of regularly.

Road salt in winter: To make icy roads safer, salt is often sprinkled in winter. However, once the snow and ice have melted, the excess salt should be removed to prevent environmental damage and protect the road surface.

Street cleaning is a complex process that requires a combination of manual work, machine work and expert knowledge. Through these efforts, our urban environment remains clean, safe, and enjoyable for everyone.

Technology and equipment in street cleaning

Street cleaning has undergone impressive technological development over the years. Modern technologies and equipment have not only increased the efficiency and effectiveness of cleaning, but also contributed to safety and environmental friendliness. Here is an overview of the technologies and equipment that are used in street cleaning today:

Modern cleaning vehicles:

  • sweepers: Equipped with rotating brushes that swirl up dirt and a suction system that absorbs the dirt. They can be used for both dry and wet cleaning.
  • Spraying and washing vehicles: Special vehicles that spray water or cleaning solutions onto the road and then clean them with brushes or high-pressure water jets.
  • Suction vehicles: These are specifically designed to remove large amounts of leaves or snow.

Technological advancements:

  • Automated systems: Some modern sweepers are equipped with sensors that detect the degree of dirt on the road and adjust the cleaning intensity accordingly.
  • GPS and route planning systems: These systems help optimize cleaning vehicle routes, resulting in more efficient cleaning and fuel savings.
  • Eco-friendly technologies: Many cleaning vehicles today use alternative fuels or have electric drive systems to reduce CO2 emissions.

Other equipment:

  • high pressure washer: For stubborn dirt or graffiti removal.
  • Snow plows and spreaders: For winter services to clear snow and distribute road salt or sand.
  • Mobile garbage vacuum: Hand-held devices that are particularly used in hard-to-reach areas such as parking lots or sidewalks.

Security and surveillance technology:

  • Cameras and sensors can be attached to vehicles to inform the driver about obstacles or pedestrians and to prevent collisions.
  • Lighting systems ensure that cleaning vehicles are easily visible even in poor lighting conditions.

The ongoing development in street cleaning technology reflects the growing importance that communities and cities place on a clean, safe and environmentally friendly environment. With these advanced equipment and technologies, roads can be cleaned effectively and sustainably, improving the cityscape and increasing the quality of life of residents.

Environmental impact and sustainability in street cleaning

Street cleaning plays a crucial role in urban hygiene and cleanliness. But in addition to its main goal of removing dirt and debris from roads, it also has a significant impact on the environment. Sustainable street cleaning therefore takes into account both its primary task and its ecological footprint.

Wastewater treatment after street cleaning:

The waste water produced during street cleaning contains dirt, oils, chemicals and other contaminants. If they enter groundwater or bodies of water in an uncontrolled manner, these can cause significant environmental damage.

Efficient wastewater treatment is therefore essential. It ensures that pollutants and contaminants are removed from water before it is returned to the environment. This reduces the risk of contamination and protects the ecological balance of water sources.

Eco-friendly cleaning agents:

Many traditional cleaning products contain chemicals that are potentially harmful to the environment. As a result of their use, soils, groundwater and surface water can be contaminated.

The use of environmentally friendly cleaning agents reduces these risks. These products are biodegradable and leave no harmful residues in the environment.

Reducing waste and reusing resources:

State-of-the-art street cleaning technologies are designed to minimize the amount of waste generated during cleaning. For example, advanced filter systems in cleaning vehicles can recover large amounts of solid waste.

Some of these collected materials can be reused or recycled, reducing the need to obtain new raw materials and reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

Collecting and recycling road waste such as glass, metal or plastic also contributes to the circular economy and promotes sustainable use of resources.

Street cleaning therefore goes beyond simply keeping our roads clean. It has the potential to make a significant contribution to conserving our environmental resources and to minimize the negative impact of human activities on the environment. A sustainable approach to street cleaning is therefore not only ecologically sensible, but also economically and socially responsible.

Street cleaning challenges and solutions

Street cleaning is not only a logistical masterpiece, it must also face numerous challenges and find suitable solutions:

Busy roads and traffic:

challenge: One of the main problems in urban areas is heavy traffic. Cleaning main roads during peak hours can lead to traffic obstructions and poses a risk to cleaning teams.
solution: Cleaning work is often carried out early in the morning or late in the evening when traffic is at its lowest. It can also be helpful to set up temporary detours or to manage traffic in cooperation with the police or public order office.

Major events or festivals:

challenge: Large-scale events often attract thousands of visitors, which results in significant amounts of waste. This requires quick and efficient cleaning to restore public space as quickly as possible.
solution: By planning ahead and setting up additional garbage containers during the event, the amount of waste lying around can be reduced. After the event, a larger cleaning team can be deployed to clean the area in a very short time.

Efficient route planning:

challenge: When cleaning streets, it is crucial to find the fastest and most effective way to clean a maximum area in a minimum amount of time.
solution: With the help of modern technology and software, routes can be optimized and adapted to current conditions. This saves time and reduces the use of resources.

weather conditions:

challenge: Various weather conditions, whether heavy rain, snow or heat, can significantly affect street cleaning.
solution: A flexible cleaning plan that adapts to the weather forecast is an advantage here. For more extreme conditions, special equipment, such as snowplows or heat-resistant vehicles, can be used.

Environmental Impacts:

challenge: The use of cleaning agents and machinery has potential environmental effects, from waste water to emissions.
solution: By using environmentally friendly cleaning agents and modern, low-emission vehicles, the ecological footprint can be minimized.

Street cleaning is undoubtedly a complex task that requires careful planning and coordination. However, with the right strategies and solutions, it can be carried out efficiently and effectively, for the benefit of all city dwellers and visitors.
