City-wide street sweeping will begin on Monday, April 17. Why does the City of Hudson sweep the roads? The benefits of street sweeping include:
- Health. Street sweeping helps improve the health of our community by removing harmful or hazardous materials from our streets.
- Public Safety. Sweepers remove roadside debris which improves road safety and reduces the rate of vehicle accidents. In addition, the presence of debris on streets or paved paths creates obstacles and trip/slip hazards for runners, pedestrians, and cyclists. Regular sweeping prevents these unnecessary accidents and injuries.
- Preservation. Street sweeping protects and preserves our pavement. It also helps preserve wildlife by eliminating plastic litter that could end up harming local wildlife through catch basins and waterways.
If you come across our street sweeper, give them a wave and some room on the road as they work to improve our roadways!
