• You can Stop Storm-Water Run-Off Pollution and help prevent the contamination of our streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans.
  • Pollutants, such as fertilizers, pesticides, paints, solvents, oil, animal waste, leaves, trash, plastics, and Styrofoam, travel by water, contaminating our environment and making their way into your body! 
  • Your handling of these pollutants, and advanced street sweeping technology, can help keep our waters and air clean.
  • Remember to eliminate or dispose of pollutants properly. Even raking and bagging leaves helps.  
  • We are all part of the solution for a cleaner and healthier environment.  For further Information go to: DicksonSweeping.com and join me at ToxicTalks.com

Prevention stops pollutants from entering our streets; waterways, streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans as our first line of defense. Street Sweeping is our second line of defense to keeping our waters clean.

​​RUN-OFF POLLUTION

“STREET SWEEPING IS AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION”

It is with great gratitude that we thank the R.F. Dickson Company for leading the industry with innovation and sweeping solutions since 1950 and helping to keep us safe and healthy, against environmental pollution.

R.F. Dickson Company uses the most advanced Street Sweeping technology, such as Regenerative Air Systems, that picks up nearly everything, and clean-burning Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), when available.  This leaves our air cleaner to breathe and healthier for the environment. CNG and Regenerative Air Systems are quieter and less polluting than the majority of all other broom sweepers.

Advanced Street Sweeping is the most economical way to stop pollution before it reaches the catch-basins and storm-drains. This effectively reduces health risks and disease.
