At Jack Davenport Sweeping Services, Inc., our high standards have been keeping cities and counties clean for over 40 years. With the acquisition of our 100th vehicle, another PM-10 certified street sweeper, we are doing our part to help provide cleaner air for Californians of all ages.
As residents of California, we understand the importance of dust control and the impact it has on our environment. We can help control air pollution by reducing the amount of dust and construction pollutants in our air. Street sweepers play an important role in protecting California's air quality. In fact, according to an article published in North American Sweeper in August 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency maintains: "dust pollution from roads has been the number one cause for air pollution."
Jack Davenport Sweeping Services, Inc. operates PM-10 certified street sweepers. This means that they can pick up particulate matter as minute as 10 microns per million in diameter. To give you an idea of just how tiny that is, a human hair is 40-120 microns in diameter. We insist on procuring the latest technology in our field to ensure that we are doing all that we can to protect the environment.
Our street sweepers are in compliance with the strict air quality regulations mandated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Our PM-10 street sweepers are certified by CARB and the EPA as "Tier 4", the highest rating possible. The engines on our sweepers are fitted with components that restrict the emission of noxious gasses. We are currently in the process of upgrading and updating our fleet to meet the latest CARB diesel particulate matter regulations. Jack Davenport Sweeping Services, Inc. is and will continue to be at the forefront of technology and innovation in our industry.
