Is there a regular street cleaning service in Galway City?
A Litter Management Unit (LMU) has been in operation under the Environment section of Galway City Council since 2003.
The LMU is responsible for
- road sweeping
- litter picking
- removal of illegally dumped/fly-tipped waste
- the provision and emptying of litterbins
The city is divided into four sectors for litter management - east, west, north and city centre.
A litter management crew is assigned to each sector. Street cleaning commences at 5.30 am each morning.
