Street Sweeping

Residential seasonal street sweeping season runs April through November.

Street sweeping keeps dirt and debris out of our air and water and prevents the clogging of storm sewer inlets that can create localized flooding issues. DOTI asks residents to move their cars so the street sweepers can get all the way to the curbline where dirt and debris gathers.

Street sweeping plays a critical role in keeping Denver’s streets, air and water clean. DOTI's street sweeping program removes dirt, leaves and debris from city streets, which reduces air and water pollution and supports a clean environment. 

In 2020, Denver street sweeping crews swept 163,385 lane miles — collecting 57,479 cubic yards of dirt and debris!
