The City of Pensacola has a fleet of eight street sweepers that remove an average of more than 4,700 tons of leaves, debris and trash from city streets each year. Street sweepers provide a significant environmental benefit by helping prevent debris from entering stormwater systems and eventually discharging into local waterways.

Street sweepers run 16 routes every month, sweeping approximately 326 miles of city roadways in addition to 65 miles of State of Florida roadways within city limits.

City street sweepers also provide special event cleanup after parades and other large-scale events. By maintaining a consistent street sweeping program, the City of Pensacola aims to continue to provide an aesthetic and clean environment for Pensacola residents and visitors.
