Weekly street sweeping program expands to Southeast Reading
Weekly street sweeping program expands to Southeast Reading effective November 2, 2020.
Cotton, Fairview, Mineral Spring Road, Perkiomen Avenue, and South 11th through South 19th streets will be served by the expanded program.
The sweeper program reduces road debris and helps to mitigate its negative effects such as:
- Insects and rodents attracted by litter and food waste
- Sharp objects such as broken glass, nails, and screws that can cause physical injury or property damage
- Poor drainage and neighborhood flooding resulting from storm sewers blocked by litter
- Vehicle damage caused by salt and cinders that accumulate during winter months
