DENVER – Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) is reminding residents that street sweeping season starts Friday, April 1, and is asking people to check the red and white signs on their block for parking restrictions and move their car on their street sweeping day to avoid a $50 citation.

Denver’s annual street sweeping program removes dirt and debris off city streets, keeping it out of our air and water and making our environment cleaner and healthier. Denver asks residents to move their cars on their street sweeping day so the sweepers can reach all the way to the curb line where dirt accumulates. The removal of debris also prevents storm sewer inlets from getting clogged.

In addition to checking the red and white signs on their block, residents can look up street sweeping schedules and sign up for email/text reminders at www.pocketgov.com. The posted street season runs April through November.

What: Opportunity for pictures/b-roll of a DOTI street sweeper in advance of tomorrow to help remind residents about the program. A DOTI spokesperson will be available.

When: 10:30am TODAY

Where: W. 46th Avenue and Irving Street
