Clean Sweep - Toronto

June 11, 2009

Toronto

Toronto's air will be much cleaner thanks to a new street sweeping program recently implemented by Canada's largest city. Conventional mechanical street sweepers use a system of gutter brooms and main broom to sweep the dust and debris that typically accumulates on city streets and in gutters. While some of the material is collected by the machine, much of the fine road dust - which originates from asphalt, rubber tires, and wearing of brake discs and pads - kicked up by the sweeper is dissipated into the air, adversely affecting air quality.

Clean Roads - Toronto Clean Roads to Clean Air

June 11, 2009

The City of Toronto’s "Clean Roads to Clean Air" initiative was conceived as a potential means of cleaning the city’s air of a citywide and year-round health-based problem linked to "invisible" fine particulate matter1 which is particulate matter less than 10 microns aerodynamic diameter (PM10) which includes particulates less than 2.5 microns aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5). The City’s recent purchase of "new technology" sweepers has been determined in large measure, but not exclusively of regular operational and economic considerations, by a performance standard that was incorporated into sweeper purchase requirements to ensure particulate matter was both removed from the streets being swept, and was not redistributed into the air Torontonians breathed. Recently acquired "new technology" sweeper purchases are being subjected to citywide and street-specific ambient air quality monitoring to confirm that such new sweepers do indeed "clean the air."
