Policy: Clean Streets Action Plan

Clean, attractive city streets are more than just an effective calling card; they are a necessity for any liveable city. The Clean Streets Action Plan details exactly how to get Amsterdam looking its best again. The plan contains three key points:

• Data-driven cleaning: Street cleaning teams will make use of real-time data, such as sensors that alert workers when waste containers are full. 

• Shared responsibility: Amsterdam will cooperate and share responsibility with businesses and residents.

• Smarter methods: Street cleaning will no longer be arranged separately for each city district, but centrally for the whole city.
