Street Sweeping

Livermore Keeps On Sweeping

The City of Livermore maintains a street sweeping program to comply with provisions of the federally mandated Clean Water Act. Street sweeping helps to remove pollutants which potentially can drain into the City's arroyos and into San Francisco Bay.

To improve effectiveness of the Street Sweeping Program, the City staff asks that you park your cars off the street on your scheduled sweeping day. Sweeping around parked cars requires more time and is a dangerous maneuver. Moving your cars will allow the sweeper to do a better job for you and your neighbors.

Leaf Removal Season

Depending on weather, the City of Livermore's Leaf Pick-Up program starts the week after Thanksgiving and ends by mid February.  The leaves are picked up one day before the regularly scheduled street sweeping day.  For instance, if the street is scheduled to be swept on Thursday, the leaves will be picked up on Wednesday.

If the scheduled pick-up day is not sufficient, residents can also put the leaves in bags and call (925) 960-8020.

How To Use the Street Sweeping Map & Schedule (PDF)

  1. Match your street location and numbered area on the map to the corresponding numbered area listed on the schedule.
  2. Note day of month in column immediately to the right.  This is the day the sweeper will be in your area each month, regardless of the date.
  3. If your street sweeping day falls on a City holiday, your street will be swept the following week. For instance, if Monday is your street sweeping day and it falls on a City holiday, your street will be swept the following Monday.
  4. If you are unsure of your scheduled day, call the City of Livermore Maintenance Division at 960-8020, between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, or between 6:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Fridays.
