Street Sweeping

The University of Mississippi's Landscape Services Department plays a vital roll in street sweeping on campus. The Landscape team is responsible for maintaining over ten miles of campus streets as well as numerous parking lots and service drives.

A dust-free sweeper, which uses a powerful vacuum and high efficiency filters to control secondary dust, is used to clean the many curbs along the street. This keeps gutters free of debris so rain water can flow freely into drains. Backpack blowers are also used by the Landscape Services team to clean up tight corners in service drives and parking lots.


Street sweeping is performed all year round on campus. However, sweeping is more frequent during the fall and early winter to help manage the heavy leaf drop.
