In addition to maintaining the attractiveness of city streets by removing unsightly litter, street sweeping is an integral part of the City’s Storm Water Quality Program. By removing trash, debris, and polluted sediment from roadways and gutters, street sweeping helps minimize the environmental impacts of urban runoff into Carmel Bay. Street sweeping is conducted early in the morning in Downtown Carmel, when few cars are present, to maximize the efficacy of the program.
