Recently I went out with Colchester Council staff who operate the street sweepers.

Picked up and taken round each road on Shrub End estate and Monkwick Estate I found the day interesting.

The machine sweeps the kerb line (where it can get to as cars some time get in the way) and washes /sweeps all the litter and silt into a hopper, which is taken back to Shrub End recycling centre.

Thanks to the lads and lasses for showing me the ropes, as like most people I am interested in having clean streets
