North Hempstead Highway crews will be hitting the streets around the clock this week to sweep up the winter debris on town streets as the annual Operation: Clean Sweep gets underway, according to Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth. This two-week initiative is held each spring and aims to sweep every mile of North Hempstead roads.

“The winter leaves the streets full of dirt and debris, which is in part the result of sanding our roads to keep them safe over the winter months,” said Bosworth. “That’s why Operation: Clean Sweep is so important. It will make our roads cleaner and safer for motorists and cyclists. This is North Hempstead’s spring cleaning.”

Last year, the town’s environ-mentally friendly bio-fueled street sweepers kept debris out of the town’s freshwater catch basins, as required by New York State, and gobbled up 5-million pounds of debris, with an even higher total expected this year.

In order to make Clean Sweep a success, the Highway Department asks that residents refrain from parking vehicles on town roads from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. during Operation: Clean Sweep days. The public’s cooperation will ensure that the roads get as clean as possible.

This week (Monday, April 25, to Friday, April 29), all areas NOT within incorporated villages and south of the Long Island Expressway (LIE) will be swept. Next week (Monday, May 2, to Friday, May 6), all areas NOT within incorporated villages and north of the LIE will be swept.
