Street sweeping and cleaning

Streets in the City of Melton are cleaned by a motorised street sweeper. It is well-recognised that tidy streets and neigbourhoods promote a sense of community, safety and amenity. Frequency of service depends upon the location and amount of pedestrians and traffic.

What do street sweepers do?

Street sweepers remove litter and leaves that collect in gutters. This prevents blockages of storm water facilities leading to waterways. The service also removes other hazardous waste products that can harm wildlife.

Before requesting street sweeping, please check the following service schedule. Some areas are the responsibility of VicRoads and not Council.
