Cleaning city streets top priority for Birmingham


share close

Ongoing efforts to improve Birmingham’s neighbourhoods have been bolstered by a deal that has seen the city council start implementation of 31 new street sweeping vehicles. The vehicles will be deployed across the city, replacing ageing machines that have reached the end of their operational lives.

Part of a broader modernisation programme, the street sweepers join 76 new refuse collection vehicles that started delivery to the council’s depots last month following a further £11million investment in street scene services.

Cllr John O’Shea, Cabinet Member for Street Scene and Parks at Birmingham City Council, said: “Clean streets are consistently a high priority for people in this city, so it is essential that our hardworking crews and teams have the tools available to them to achieve the aspirations that residents have for Birmingham.

“Our fleet needed an upgrade, and we will now be able to deliver a more reliable and effective service in the future. Keep a lookout for the vehicles on a street near you soon.”
