PM10-Efficient Street Sweepers

A PM10-efficient street sweeper is a street sweeper that is certified by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) as meeting the testing and performance standards set forth in SCAQMD Rule 1186.  All certified street sweepers must be operated and maintained in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications. 

PM10-efficient street sweepers may be used for cleaning carryout and trackout on a public paved roadway from traffic leaving a construction site, an unpaved road or equipment area, or the handling of bulk materials, per Rule 8041 – Carryout and Trackout.  Using blower devices, or dry rotary brushes or brooms for removing carryout and trackout on a public road is prohibited. 

PM10-efficient street sweepers are also used for routine street sweeping in urban areas.  As of June 1, 2005, Rule 8061 – Pave and Unpaved Roads requires government agencies to purchase only PM10-efficient street sweepers.  This requirement also applies to the contractors who provide street sweeping services to these agencies.  There are no retrofit allowances under Rule 8061 or SCAQMD Rule 1186.  Agencies conducting or contracting for routine street sweeping services must place into service at least one PM10-efficient street sweeper by June 1, 2008. 

A complete list of certified equipment may be obtained from the SCAQMD website at: http://www.aqmd.gov/docs/default-source/rule-book/support-documents/rule-1186/certified-street-sweepers-equipment-list.pdf?sfvrsn=2.
