CleanScapes provides garbage and recycling services to Shoreline.
As part of a pilot project with the City of Shoreline, CleanScapes is using a modified commercial collection truck to plow and sand roads in Shoreline. CleanScapes’ President, Chris Martin, came up with the idea after the significant snowfall the region received in 2008.
“It occurred to me that if our trucks could not get out to collect garbage on steep or difficult to reach streets, why not use them to assist our municipal customers to increase the number of plows on main arterials”, said Martin.
CleanScapes acquired several plows and a sander that can be placed on collection vehicles in 2009, and they are piloting this modified service approach in Shoreline.
