Today, Environment and Immunity systems are the much talked about topics around the world. Today’s world is full of fear, insecurity, and stress because of the Covid-19 destruction. Environment, Covid-19, and Immune systems are interrelated terms. Because of environmental pollution, our immune system is weakening that cannot protect us against some fatal diseases. When a city’s environment is clean and healthy for its community, it attracts people to live and work there. To keep its environment free from pollution and citizens fit, Advanced Street Sweeping in Hawthorne is essential. R. F. Dickson Company, an Industry-leading Street Sweeper seeks to apply its 70 years’ experience and attention to detail to the citizen’s health in Hawthorne and other Southern California cities. R.F. Dickson can be the best partner of the city to handle the complexities of Street Cleaning.

Hawthorne is a city in Los Angeles metropolitan area in Southern California. It is located in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County, a seventeen-city area in southern California. The city was incorporated in 1922, and its current population is nearly 87,000 within its 15.77 square kilometers.  If we look back at the city’s history, B.L. Harding and H.D. Lombard founded the town in 1905 as “Hawthorne Improvement Company.” Later, the town was named after the favorite author of Harding’s daughter, Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hawthorne was dubbed “America’s most beautiful suburban town,” perfect for industrious families seeking a simple, child-friendly lifestyle.

Some unusual facts of Hawthorne:

  • Hawthorne is the home of America’s famous band, The Beach Boys. The background music for the PSA that cities use to inform the public what goes into our streets, goes into our bodies: https://youtu.be/BEU8FU_kQcs
  • One of the world’s greatest athletes, Jim Thorpe, lived in Hawthorne.
  • Aircraft pioneer Jack Northrop established his company in Hawthorne.
  • Home to the famous SpaceX Headquarters facility.

The City of Hawthorne could easily be described as the “Hub of the South Bay,” as it is conveniently located near the Los Angeles International Airport, is connected by rail to the Port of Los Angeles and downtown Los Angeles and is surrounded by the San Diego (I-405), Harbor (I-110), and Glenn M. Anderson (I-105) Freeways. Hawthorne’s location allows residents easy access to everything Southern California offers, including culture, sports, entertainment, mountains, and beaches. The area’s temperatures are consistently among the most comfortable in the Los Angeles basin. Because of all of these facilities and attractions, thousands of tourists travel to the city every year. A considerable amount of wastes are produced through their food trashes, bottles, cans, papers, magazines, etc. There is a need for a Street Sweeping Company in Hawthorne so that the wastes cannot go into our environment and body.


Still, our Earth is undergoing the uncontrollable destruction of Covid-19. This is because there is no antidote has been discovered for the treatment of Covid-19. Hence, we need to depend on prevention which lies in strengthening our immune system. But environmental pollution is the main obstacle to it. Many scientific studies show that pollution harms our health and immune system, leading to severe disease. According to the European Health Alliance, there is “A strong correlation between air pollution and COVID-19 could explain the negative impact on the immune system.” When the situation is like that, Street Sweeping is the essential solution for eliminating pollutants and poisons from the environment keeping the air free of pollution that helps protect our immune systems from various deadly diseases.

Hawthorne is surrounded by major freeways of the region. Every day hundreds of vehicles are running on those routes for carrying passengers and transportation of goods. Transportation chemicals, gasoline exhaust, braking, and tire dust are all carried along city streets, which act as pollution receptacles. Then there’s the water, as well as pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, weed killers, paints, oils, grease, animal feces, batteries, rotting leaves, and a slew of other poisons. Heavy metals and chemicals from building sites may also contribute to this toxic mix. Without Street Sweeping, pollutants may accumulate and make their way into the environment, drinking water, and our bodies.

The importance of Street Cleaning can be specifically pointed out below:

  • Debris and materials may be removed from the streets, which in terms ensure public safety.
  • Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists will be safer on the roadways if barriers and hazardous pollutants are removed.
  • It is critical to keep the streets clean in order to maintain a healthy atmosphere.
  • Debris and other items may be kept out of the storm drain to control stormwater runoff virtually.
  • Street Sweeping removes roadside food trashes that attract pets and animals and can cause an accident to them.
  • Street Sweeping is needed to reduce vehicle damage from road debris.
  • Wetland preservation is ensured by keeping hazardous pollutants out of the ecosystem.

Dickson’s knowledge in pollution control and disease prevention through sweeping service can be the most effective means for keeping toxins out of our body and environment leading to a stronger immune system in light of Covid-19.  

Sweeping companies vary when it comes to delivering excellent service. In order to get the contract, some businesses remove essential services from the sweeping program. Sometimes town government lack the resources, administration, and equipment necessary to cope with the scale of ongoing pollution and cleanup. Both of these factors raise the danger of a city’s inhabitants’ health being jeopardized.
