About Our History


CleanStreet, formerly known as California Street Maintenance and South Bay Sweeping, is headquartered in Gardena, California.

Company founder and CEO Jere Costello began sweeping shopping centers in 1961. In 1969, with the help of George Graziadio and Imperial Bank, Jere purchased his first street sweeper: the revolutionary and dependable Tymco Air Sweeper.

By 1973, we had become one of the largest shopping center-sweeping companies in Southern California. In that same year, the company began sweeping its first municipality, the city of Rolling Hills Estates. We will always be grateful to City Manager Harry Peacock for his faith in our company and for giving us that opportunity.

In 1978, with the passage of Proposition 13, cities became more interested than ever in saving money. Potential municipal clients would come to us with a common concern:

“Of  course we would like to contract for street sweeping services and same money. But how do we know you will do a good job? We have had some bad experiences with irresponsible and non-responsive contractors.”

Our response was, and still is as follows:

“We will make a simple promise to you and your city. We will sweep every street, on time, any day of the week. We will instruct our operators to take as many passes as are necessary to clean each street thoroughly.  If we receive a complaint, we will re-sweep immediately, with no questions asked.”

As word of our quality work and dependability spread, we steadily grew, year after year. Our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction led to our overwhelming success.

Today, CleanStreet continues to serve scores of municipalities and major private facilities with high-quality cleaning and sweeping services. The key to our success is the fact that we still keep that promise of quality to our clients.

CleanStreet takes pride in the high level of expertise that we bring to every job.  We employ the best staff and methods and the most effective modern equipment available.

Our employees are well-trained and enjoy good pay and healthcare benefits. They take great pride in quality of their work and in your complete satisfaction.
