The official term used to label anything that is swept into a pile of trash with the use of a broom.
The size of individual pieces inside the pile as a whole does not matter unless that piece is removed from the pile. In this case that piece of sweeping is no longer regarded as a sweeping but simply as trash or whatever wierd use a person could have for something that has been in a pile of sweepings.
I had the biggest pile of sweepings I'd seen in a long time swept together when I was cleaning my kitchen last night. Then my dog came in and picked out a large piece which then appeared to be half of a trashy Home Gardening Magazine. What he did with it I'll never know.
