Street Sweeping Goal

The City of Topeka sweeps its streets at least 4 times a year.


Actual times may vary depending on equipment availability, inclement weather, and unforeseen staff disruptions, such as emergency repair responses.

Why It Is Necessary to Sweep Streets

Besides the beautification benefits of street sweeping, the city’s Street Sweeping Program is designed to remove sand, small gravel, natural debris, and chemicals from city streets. Street sweeping helps prevent stormwater system backups and meet federal requirements to keep contaminates out of streams and rivers.

 

Street Sweeping Resources

The city operates 6 three-wheel sweepers and two vacuum trucks.

The day-sweeping operation concentrates on residential streets when they are typically less congested with parked cars. Neighborhoods are usually swept from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The night-sweeping operation concentrates on the busier arterial and collector streets when those streets are less busy.
