After receiving hundreds of name suggestions, Niagara Falls residents have officially decided the names of the City’s two street sweepers!

‘Honeymoon Sweep’ and ‘Obi-Wan Cleanobi’ received the majority of the votes, edging out other shortlist names such as Sir Sweeps-A-Lot, Sweepy McSweeperson, and Clean Latifa.

The 10-day voting period, which ended on June 30th, saw over 800 Niagara Falls residents cast their vote to name the City’s street sweepers. This initiative was launched at the City’s Touch-A-Truck event in May in celebration of National Public Works Week.

'Honeymoon Sweep' is named after the iconic Canadian rock band and Niagara Falls natives, Honeymoon Suite, while 'Obi-Wan Cleanobi' is named after the Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Keep an eye out for “Obi-Wan Cleanobi” and “Honeymoon Sweep,” who will be out on our streets through the summer, helping to create a healthier environment for our community and neighbourhoods.

Our street sweeping program improves road safety for vehicles, pedestrians, runners, and cyclists. It also helps to protect our environment by reducing the amount of material washed away into our storm sewer system, which leads to our rivers, streams, and creeks.

Thank you to everyone who participated!
