Charles Brooks Invented The Street Sweeper


A Black man from Newark, New Jersey invented the first ever self-propelled street sweeper truck that was patented on March 17, 1896.

His name was Charles B. Brooks.

Prior to Brooks’ invention, people would often use horse-drawn machines to clean the streets.
