Sweeping clean north of the border

Four Swingo 200+ Euro 6 sweepers are now working in the streets of West Dunbartonshire.

“We decided to purchase the Swingo sweepers after we run tests that showed these machines to meet our requirements in relation to productivity and after sales service superior,” said Ian Bain, Green Space Manager at West Dunbartonshire Council.

“The Council is so pleased with our machines, that is in the process of ordering two other Swingo sweepers, which are scheduled for delivered around May this year,” said David Carswell, Aebi Schmidt Area Sales Manager Scotland & Republic of Ireland.

West Dunbartonshire lies to the northwest of Glasgow, between Loch Lomond and the River Clyde. Although the area contains many of Glasgow’s commuter towns and villages, as well as the city’s suburbs, it is one of the smallest councils in Scotland, covering an area of 61 square miles. But although the area is small, the council still deals with a range of litter problems and is responsible for keeping roads clean and litter-free. It bases its street cleaning programme on perceived need with frequencies of cleaning varying depending on location.
