“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,” said Commissioner Anthony Vainieri. “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 boasts numerous advantages over its conventional counterparts. It operates quietly, minimizing noise pollution, and runs solely on electricity, eliminating harmful exhaust emissions. This eco-friendly approach aligns perfectly with North Bergen’s sustainability goals, contributing to the overall well-being of the community and enhancing the quality of life for its residents.

Beyond its environmental benefits, the all-electric street vacuum also offers exceptional performance.

This innovative equipment not only enhances the cleanliness and aesthetics of North Bergen but also optimizes operational efficiency for the local waste management teams.

The adoption of this all-electric street vacuum underscores North Bergen’s commitment to embracing progressive technologies and sustainable solutions. By investing in forward-thinking infrastructure, the town sets an inspiring example for other communities, demonstrating that environmentally conscious choices can be both practical and impactful.

“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 North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco. “I commend Commissioner Vainieri on this new initiative and appreciate his ongoing commitment to North Bergen.”

North Bergen’s acquisition of its first all-electric street vacuum marks an exciting milestone in the town’s journey towards a more sustainable future. It symbolizes the town’s dedication to reducing its carbon footprint, improving air quality, and embracing innovative solutions for efficient waste management. As North Bergen paves the way for other municipalities, it becomes a shining beacon of environmental leadership, inspiring positive change and fostering a greener world for generations to come.
