Puyallup's street sweeping program is an integral part of the Street Division and provides several benefits to the City. Street sweeping is the collection and removal of dirt and debris from streets and curbs. This is done not only for aesthetic purposes, but also to remove both large and microscopic pollutants that collect on City streets. Clean streets help to improve both air standards and stormwater quality for the citizens of Puyallup.
Sweeping is done year round as weather permits. The Street Division adheres to a tight schedule which allows for all City maintained roads to be swept bi-weekly. However, City sweepers are also tasked with emergency response situtations, community events, and road construction projects.
