Street Cleaning

  • 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.
