Roadway debris has the potential to cause fatal car accidents on our roadway. There is Debris Vacuum System available from the Clean Earth Environmental Group that helps prevent accidents involving roadway debris.
Litter removal specifically, costs the United States over half a billion dollars every year. This system was created to do to the labor, so that people do not have to. It also helps make litter removal more safe and efficient. It is called the “Automated Roadway Debris Vacuum” or in shorter terms, “ARDVAC.”
The machine has features that help with sewer and ditch cleaning of liter. Most litter can be easily collected by the vacuum cleaner. The cleaner can actually access roadway edges to collect litter that tends to blow up and stick under fences and other objects.
This machine has helped keep our roadways safer for drivers. It also keeps our environment clean.
