Amber Valley’s New Battery-powered Sweeper

In their latest step towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2030, Amber Valley borough council have introduced the first battery-powered precinct sweeper to clean up the streets of Amber Valley.

This greener and cleaner sweeper replaces the previous diesel model in Ripley Town Centre and is far more efficient. With fewer moving parts, it is also likely to be more reliable and should be cheaper to run.

Scott Copeland, Town Centre Operatives, said: "...I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to try the machine out before the council committed to buy one and I knew within the first few hours how much of an improvement it is."
