NIAGARA FALLS, ON - After receiving hundreds of name suggestions, Niagara Falls residents have officially decided the names of the City’s two street sweepers in an online vote.

Earlier today, the City announced that ‘Honeymoon Sweep’ and ‘Obi-Wan Cleanobi’ received the majority of the votes, edging out other shortlist names such as Sir Sweeps-A-Lot, Sweepy McSweeperson, and Clean Latifa. 

The 10-day voting period, which ended on June 30th, saw over 800 Niagara Falls residents cast their vote to name the City’s street sweepers. This initiative was launched at the City’s Touch-A-Truck event in May in celebration of National Public Works Week. 

'Honeymoon Sweep' is named after the iconic Canadian rock band and Niagara Falls natives, Honeymoon Suite, while 'Obi-Wan Cleanobi' is named after the Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi.
