Migrating birds, apple picking, shorter days, and cool temperatures are all signs of autumn being right around the corner. But it’s not all golden months, as autumn is also when leaves start changing colours and falling, causing havoc for drivers and pedestrians alike. As nature gears up for autumn, local authorities and councils need to gear up their street sweeping to keep their roads and drains clear.
Street sweeping during the autumn months can be a challenge. The annual shedding of leaves combines with harvest time in agricultural sector and the worsening weather to create complications. Leaves often become wet, bulky and difficult to collect and, if left unattended, they can block the drains and gutters, cause slipping and tripping hazards, and even potential flooding.
Climate change has caused more seasonal uncertainty, making it hard to forecast when the leafing-season will occur or how long it will take. In fact, heat and drought due to climate change has been causing trees go into survival mode, pushing trees into shedding leaves to save water and energy, causing a ‘false autumn’.
This is where Dawsongroup emc can provide extra support during the season. Paul Beddows, Sales Director for Dawsongroup emc, said, “Autumn is the busiest season for street sweeping. Over the years, we have supplied councils and local authorities with high quality sweepers to help them managing street cleaning for leafing season.”
