The Parish is responsible for
cleaning roads and pavements within the ring road, and the States'
Department for Infrastructure cleans the roads outside the Parish
The Parish's street cleaning team
has been reviewing its methods of cleaning in order to better
utilize the current resources. It has categorized each road within
the ring road using industry standard guidelines to provide a
baseline to work with, and from this information the frequency of
cleaning has been determined based on criteria such as footfall,
demographics, number and types of businesses on that
The team is currently in the
process of determining the most suitable methods of cleansing, such
as litter picking, manual or mechanical sweeping, and this will be
based on a number of factors such as accessibility, surface type,
street furniture and other fixed obstacles.
The Parish currently has a range
of equipment used within the street cleaning service to ensure
maximum coverage, ranging from the basic manual sweeping handcart
right through to the big Johnson Road Sweeper. Each piece of
equipment has a specific role to play:
Handcart - this is a very simple but effective method which can
be accessed and used in all weathers. Ideal for use in high
footfall areas such as the precinct.
Mechanical sit-on Green Machine - using a combination of
scrubbing and suction, this is a powerful tool for picking up
litter and debris across a number of surface types and can be used
in both large and small areas.
Glutton - this is an electric battery-powered
pedestrian-controlled machine with a suction hose for picking up
litter (affectionately known as the "Poodle").
Hako - this is a small ride-on sweeper/cleaner, and
is useful as a precinct and pavement washer.
Medium & Large Sweeper - this is a brushing and suction
machine which covers roads and larger paved areas.
Hot Pressure washer - this is used to provide a hot wash for the
removal of deep stains, spills and chewing gum.
Street cleaning in St Helier is
covered by a morning and afternoon crew, operating from 6am to 8pm
Monday to Saturday and 6am to 6pm on Sundays.
