“North Bergen has always been committed to keeping our streets and sidewalks clean, and this new piece of equipment will help us meet that goal,” DPW Commissioner Anthony Vainieri said in a statement.
“I am excited to hit the ground running in my new role as DPW Commissioner and build on the great work of my predecessor, Commissioner Frank Gargiulo. We will continue to find innovative ways to demonstrate the township and DPW’s commitment to both cleanliness and environmental responsibility.”
The all-electric street vacuum, the latest innovation in waste management technology, operates silently and emits zero exhaust fumes, making it an environmentally friendly solution for maintaining clean streets, sidewalks, and other public spaces.
“This new equipment will help improve our ability to keep our streets clean, and will be utilized on our main streets as well as smaller areas where our bigger sweepers can’t accommodate,” added state Senator (D-32)/North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco.
“I commend Commissioner Vainieri on this new initiative and appreciate his ongoing commitment to North Bergen.”
Moving forward, the township intends to continue expanding its fleet of eco-friendly vehicles and equipment to further enhance waste management.
