Street cleaning

The City has a comprehensive cleaning regime to prevent pollution, maintain clean public spaces and reduce risks to public health.

Sweeping streets, footpaths and other paved areas is a vital frontline operation in preventing leaves, cigarette butts, litter, drink cans, bottles and debris entering our waterways and catchments.

All City of Hobart streets and footpaths are cleaned regularly, with street sweepers travelling about 3000 kilometres per month.

City cleansing is also responsible for 44 public toilets, sporting facility change rooms and removing graffiti.
