'Bruce Springclean' or 'Sweepy McSweepface'? Rugbeians get creative in call to name new street-cleaning machine

Rugby Editorial 10th Jan, 2020   0

THE LATEST weapon in the fight against dirt and grime on Rugby’s streets has been unveiled – and it needs a name!

Town centre management company Rugby First has taken delivery of The Glutton – claimed to be the world’s most advanced urban electric vacuum.

The company put out a challenge to rename it on social media – and received over 50 suggestions within the first hour.

They included Gertie, Henry, Mr Cleaner, Bruce Springclean, Dustin Beiber, Mr Trump – and, of course, Sweepy McSweepface.




The electric cart can work for up to nine hours before it needs to be re-charged, and has a large container to collect litter and a long extendable nozzle to reach into cracks.

Rich Warren, operations director Rugby First, said: “Our new machine is streets ahead of any other technology available on the market and will enable us to provide extensive deep cleaning in problem or hard to reach areas, like pavement cracks, gutters and underneath street furniture.


“In an average month, our cleaning hit squad already carry out 70 steam-cleans and remove over 200 pieces of chewing gum. We have invested in this new machine to pick up more litter and cover a larger area, to provide the very best cleaning services possible for our town centre.”
