Fall and Winter Leaf Cleaning in Oakland
During the fall and winter months the city asks that you assist in helping keep the streets clean. To help out the city asks that you:
[-] Do not place leaves or other debris into the street or gutters. The street sweeper cannot pick it up. [Oakland Municipal Code §8.38.030] The sweepers are not designed to pick up large piles of leaves.
[-] Do not sweep leaves from your front yard, sidewalk or planter strip onto the street. Oakland Municipal Code §13.16.100 states, in part: “Sweepings from said sidewalk shall not be swept or otherwise made or allowed to go into the gutter or roadway, but shall be disposed of in receptacles maintained on said real property as required for the disposal of garbage.” [Oakland Municipal Code §13.16.100A]
[-] Please utilize your green yard trimmings and food scraps cart to its capacity.
[-] Working together, we can minimize the added impacts of the leaf season.https://www.oaklandca.gov/resources/fall-and-winter-leaf-waste

I like at 450 40th and it’s listed cleaning days are the 2nd and 4th Mon/Tues. So I got a ticket when I first moved in and learned that basically you have to count in FULL weeks, meaning if a new month starts on like a Tues, that will NOT count as a full week, you start at the next week. Well I learned this week that – that’s not really the case. Take February 2022.. street cleaning was done on the 7th/8th, that’s not technically the 2nd FULL week. If you go by FULL weeks we should only have street cleaning once this month. It’s just confusing. Thankfully I was home and didn’t get a ticket. I’m trying to find an actual calendar for street cleaning in my area that I can go by. If you can help that would be super.
Last 3 Thursdays and Fridays, as residents, on Myrtle Street, the streets have not been swept but we scrambled to find alternative parkings. Why there should be tickets issued when our street was not cleaned? We obey the rules but does city have an obligation to let residents know of their short comings?
