Sweepers For Smokers
I'm not a smoker, so I remember how delighted I was when the smoking ban was introduced in July 2007. I could actually go to the pub and leave not smelling like a tobacco factory. The ban was to make virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces in England smoke free. A smoke free England would ensure a healthier environment, so everyone could socialise, relax, travel, shop and work free from secondhand smoke. But thousands of people do smoke, and despite the ban of smoking in public places they continue to. So whilst the ashtrays have disappeared indoors they have increased outdoors.
In the last 3 years there has been an ever increasing growth in sweeper hire. The smoking ban forces thousands of smokers outside which creates a problem with litter. The outdoor areas around pubs, offices, shops, restaurants and other leisure and entertainment venues are at risk of looking like a giant ashtray with high volumes of cigarette ends being stubbed out and left on the pavements. For people at work they would usually have a cigarette on their break or at lunchtime, so the cigarette ends could be accompanied by lunch wrappers or empty drink cans. Business owners want to maintain a good clean image around their business, plus, they certainly won't want to be paying penalties for public littering.
Here at Clean Sweep UK we have a range of Nilfisk Sweepers that are used regularly by many businesses across the UK to tackle clean ups like this. Regular sweeps ensure a small clean up rather than a huge one accompanied by a huge penalty for public littering. We have sweepers that are easily manoeuvrable enabling them to clean large areas, as well as corners and narrow spaces. They have good size hoppers which allow greater dirt storage and less emptying time.
