Global Street Sweepers Clean Sweep NYC Times Square 2020

Global Street Sweepers Clean Sweep NYC Times Square 2020

Every year after the "Ball Drops" and the world famous New Years Eve party ends at NYC Times Square and everyone goes home, Global Street Sweepers line up and clean up the mess.

We are proud to say that New York City operates Global Street Sweepers, and has been for many years. NYC has the largest fleet of street sweepers in the world. Reliability and innovation is a must and always drive all of us at Global Environmental Products.

Hours after a million people celebrated the New York's iconic ball drop signaling the beginning of a new decade, work began to clean up the aftermath of the festive annual party. The Global fleet of sweepers descended to take on the monumental task of clean up. More than 200 sanitation officials worked through the night and early morning hours to rid the streets of millions of pieces of confetti, trash, and tossed novelty items.

Over 3,000 pounds of confetti blasted over the crowd once the ball completed its drop, which is about 30,000,000 pieces of colored paper. The amount of trash that was cleaned up by NYC sanitation workers after the festivities is upwards of 50-tons and ranged from confetti to balloons to party hats, pizza boxes, and empty bottles. By morning most of the scene appeared back to normal and the roads cleared with traffic flowing at normal rate.

In addition to operating Global M4 Diesel Street Sweepers, NYC also operates Global HYBRID Street Sweepers and our new M4 All Electric Plug-In sweeper as well. This is where innovation comes in. Diesel street sweepers have been around for many years, but we strive to be more efficient and continue to lower the total cost of operation of a street sweeper.

We also innovate to protect and preserve our environment. We are proud to say that our Global Hybrid Street Sweepers significantly reduce fuel consumption and gas emissions by more than 50% compared to a Diesel Engine Street Sweeper. Our ZERO Emissions sweepers are cutting-edge.

Global Environmental Products have achieved our vision of street sweepers that clean your streets with a high-performance, heavy-duty sweeping system, as well as being affordable, reliable with cutting-edge innovative technology - doing it all while producing ZERO EMISSIONS.

With all that in mind, we wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2020 and wish you all the best!

2019 APWA PWX Seattle Wrap-Up

Our Family at Global Environmental Products thanks you for all your support!

Global Environmental Products was once again part of PWX National Equipment Show taking place this year in Seattle, WA. This was our 9th PWX Attendance, where we showcased our green technologies and offered different environmentally friendly solutions - a true glance into the future of street sweeping.

Most importantly, we introduced the 1st 100% Electric Plug-In Class 7 Street Sweeper in the North America. It is a Heavy Duty street Sweeper that  utilizes lithium-ion batteries, operates 9-11 hours daily, is low maintenance and extremely quiet.

We also introduced one-of-a-kind Global R4Air, Regenerative Air Street Sweeper. The R4Air is the only Purpose Built, Single Engine Air Sweeper capable of Dumping into a truck. Its’ large 33” fan provides superb suction.

In addition, we featured our Global V6Air chassis-mounted sweeper that offers our one-of-a-kind VAST (Variable Air Stream Technology) and our Global R3Air - the only 3-wheel Regenerative Air Street Sweeper with high-dump capabilities.

Global Environmental Products has been pushing the technological envelope above and beyond that of the competition with our "Zero Emissions" street sweepers, which include the first 100% Electric Heavy-Duty Class 7 Street Sweepers in the World, and the Global M4 ZE Hydrogen Fuel Cell Street Sweeper. They are powerful, reliable, and innovative.

Global Environmental Products have achieved our vision of street sweepers that clean your streets with a high-performance, heavy-duty sweeping system, as well as being affordable, reliable with cutting-edge innovative technology - doing it all while producing ZERO EMISSIONS.

Global Exceptional Leaf Pick-Up Video


This "in-action" video illustrates our powerful leaf pick-up capabilities.

Leaf pick-up is one of the most important functions of Street Sweeping today. We feel that our sweeper must perform in leaves just as much as in heavy sand sweeping. We stand behind our products and we are ready to prove it to you. Take a look at this video - you'll be glad you did. Please contact us for a demonstration.
