Street Sweeping

Residential seasonal street sweeping begins Tuesday, April 4, 2017 and Denver Public Works needs your help to keep the Mile High City clean! 

Denver street sweeping truckOur Street Maintenance crews sweep residential streets from April through November and encourage you to SHOW YOUR PRIDE AND MOVE YOUR RIDE on your sweeping day!

Residents are advised to pay attention to the red and white signs posted on their block for street sweeping parking restrictions, so Denver Public Works can provide the best street sweeping service possible. Residential streets in Denver are only swept once per month where posted (not every block has restrictions), so please be sure to move your vehicle according to the signs on your block to avoid a $50.00 parking citation.

Residents can sign up for street sweeping reminders through pocketgov — the City’s mobile web application, which provides user-friendly access to city services via mobile device or a  computer. Create a user profile and save your contact information to receive email and text notifications.

Tips for street sweeping days

  • Remove items from the curb on sweeping days
  • Trim back branches near the street to prevent trees and equipment from damage
  • Bicyclists: ride carefully and be aware of sweeping activity near bike lanes
  • Drivers: give street sweepers plenty of room and only pass when safe to do so

Remember to always follow the sweeping time restrictions on your block and refrain from parking during the restricted times posted, even if it appears a sweeper has already cleaned the street, as sweepers may need to return to the area for additional sweeping. 

Street sweeping plays a critical role in keeping Denver’s streets, air and water clean. Denver Public Works’ Street Sweeping Program removes dirt, leaves and debris from city streets, which reduces air and water pollution and supports a clean environment. In 2016, Denver street sweeping crews swept 143,112 lane miles of Denver streets and collected 62,848 cubic yards of dirt and debris.
