The Importance Of Street Sweepers
Litter is an avoidable problem, and we all have a responsibility to help address the issue. Our actions, or inaction, to fight litter affect us all and will have an impact on generations to come.

The Impact Of Litter
Litter not only impacts animals and injures wildlife, but can pollute waterways, and even harm humans. The RSPCA receives on average 7,500 calls a year about litter-related incidents impacting animals. Furthermore, in a recent study, analysing blood samples from 22 anonymous donors, 17 people were found to have plastic particles in their bloodstream.
Research has found a link between deprivation, crime, and litter. 28% of areas that were the most deprived fell below an acceptable standard for litter. Additionally, it was found there was a higher crime rate in areas with rubbish, graffiti, and fly-posting, and less in the cleanest streets.
Surveys have revealed that living in a neighbourhood that is scattered with litter can reduce your property price by 12%. On average this is a loss of around £21,000, caused simply by rubbish outside your home.
Street cleaning involves various strands of activities connected to the cleanliness of our streets. These can include street sweeping whether this is manual, or machine-based, car park cleaning, fly-tip removal, the removal of graffiti, litter picking, weed spraying, dog bin emptying, chewing gum removal, and flyposting. These activities can often be overlooked however, when not completed, the evidence is visual and can be substantial. Therefore, leading to differences in quality of life and the overall aesthetic of towns and cities.
