When you rinse a driveway

What do you do with the muck that ends up at the bottom of the drive? Rinse it into the street? Collect it somehow? Blow it off the side of the drive as you go?

Basic variables here Bryan.

Depends what the muck is and how it looks if simply dispersed into the surroundings.

Also,..simply depends on how much there is.

In conclusion: Considering it's usually just VERY small particles of dirt 99/100 I just disperse it around,..some into the grass,..maybe down to the end of the driveway and then off the the edge of the street,..kinda just blend it in. Not gonna hurt anything and when everything is dry,.you'll never see it.

* Spalling concrete gets hauled off to a nondescript location.

Pretty much what Jeff says. We really haven't had any that has enough much or debris. All the "dirt" just gets moved around between the grass and the street.

Heck I wish I could help. Up here in the sticks we don't have concrete driveways. Only dirt, gravel and asphalt. Even the rich and shameless only have asphalt.

Depending on the neighborhood, we will make sure the immediate area at the homes driveway is rinsed and the debris is washed to the curb. If the home has concrete curbs, we often will clean that so the completed home really stands out right down the to street.

I love cleaning the public sidewalk from property border to border showing the remarkable difference our process will give the neighbors too.smile

When you rinse the driveway try rinsing at an angle to the grass. You can blow a lot into the grass and minimize whats at the street.

If there is a ton we scoop it. Either way we rinse out directly in front of the driveway. Nothing worse than having a homeowner come home and drive through the muck.....tire tracks up the driveway suck!

By law nothing is supposed to be left in the end of the driveway because it's a potential pollutant. If it gets wash to a storm drain and someone calls or sees you it's a big fine. I know over here it starts at $50k we always divert back to landscape or suck it up. We place BMB's at both sides to prevent runoff
