Jere Costello, CEO and Founder
Founder and CleanStreet CEO Jere Costello began sweeping shopping centers in 1961 at the age of 13.
In 1969, Jere bought the first revolutionary Tymco Air Sweeper. By 1973, the Company was sweeping and pressure washing over 100 shopping centers and began providing street sweeping services to the City of Rolling Hills Estates.
We worked hard to become municipal sweeping experts and an increasing number of cities began to rely on us to meet their street cleaning needs. Over the years, we have gone beyond street sweeping to develop expertise in virtually all facets of outdoor cleaning.
In 1995, we began providing services to the Old Pasadena Business Improvement District. In 1998, we started providing comprehensive services to the Hollywood Entertainment District.
Today we are successfully servicing 60 municipal clients and a wide variety of commercial and industrial clients.
We are in this business for the long run, and we are seeking to build long-term relationships and strong client loyalty based on the excellence of our work.
