A cleaner sweep for Horsham's streets

Edition: November 2023

This summer we introduced our first all-electric street sweepers to Horsham Town Centre.

The new sweepers improve air quality and reduce noise.

Reducing air pollution

Replacing the old diesel sweepers with electric power, the new street sweepers deliver a reduction in carbon emissions in line with the Council’s priority to be net zero by 2030.

Reducing noise pollution

The electric sweepers are much quieter which is valuable given the early starts worked by our street cleansing crews who keep the streets looking their best.

Two highway sweepers have also been refurbished to run on hydro-treated vegetable oil, a carbon-saving fuel which reduces carbon emissions.

These vehicles represent another step forward in our vision for a cleaner Horsham District. Upgrades like this will help us achieve a green, thriving and carbon neutral area.
