POSSIBILITIES OF CLEANING PARKING STREETS AND THE RATIONALIZATION OF MANUAL STREET CLEANSING

MOEGLICHKEITEN ZUR REINIGUNG VERPARKTER STRASSEN UND ZUR RATIONALISIERUNG DER MANUELLEN STRASSENREINIGUNG

THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES THE DIFFERENT CAUSES OF HIGHWAY DEFILEMENT (SURFACE- AND TYRE-ABRASION, CONSTRUCTION WORK, DISCARDED LITTER, ETC), AND GIVES INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CARRYING-OUT OF MECHANICAL AND MANUAL CLEANSING OF PARKING STREETS. FOR MECHANICAL CLEANSING ONLY AN ABSOLUTE PARKING PROHIBITION DURING THE PUBLISHED CLEANING PERIOD (PERMANENT OR MOBILE TRAFFIC SIGNS) IS LIKELY TO BE EFFECTIVE. THE USE OF WASHING EQUIPMENT, RELATED TO THE TIME OF YEAR, IS NOT POSSIBLE EVERYWHERE DUE TO VARYING DRAINAGE SYSTEMS AND POTENTIAL AQUAPLANING DANGERS. NORMAL CLEANSING MEASURES FOR TOWNS OF UP TO 50000 AND OVER 500000 POPULATION ARE DESCRIBED. THE GREATEST SUCCESS IS ACHIEVED BY AN EXPEDIENT COMBINATION OF MECHANICAL AND MANUAL CLEANSING, USING THE MOST MODERN STREET CLEANING MACHINES, WASHING VEHICLES, SWEEPER-SUCTION MACHINES. FURTHER CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO THE CLEANSING OF PEDESTRIAN ZONES, PLANNING REQUIREMENTS FOR ACCESS HEIGHT AND BREADTH, SURFACE STABILITY AND LOADING CAPACITY FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF MECHANICAL SWEEPERS, PROBLEMS OF CLEANING BY HAND AND THE NECESSITY FOR THE MOBILITY OF MANUAL CLEANING GANGS. THE TWO-MAN SYSTEM IS RECOMMENDED FOR MANUAL CLEANING. FINALLY EXPERIENCES DURING THE RATIONALIZATION OF MANUAL CLEANSING IN MANNHEIM ARE REPORTED.
