Denver's Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) is reminding residents that street sweeping season starts next Tuesday, April 2, and is encouraging people to check the red and white signs on their block for parking restrictions and to 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. DOTI also reminds people not to sweep leaves into the street.
In addition to checking for red and white posted street sweeping signs on their block, residents can look up their street sweeping schedule and sign up for email/text reminders by visiting The posted street season runs April through November.
In 2023, Denver street sweeping crews swept 108,035 lane miles — collecting 50,537 cubic yards of dirt and debris. That’s enough dirt and debris to fill 15 Olympic-size swimming pools or fill a football field more than 23 feet high with dirt.
