Denver street sweeping truck

Street Sweeping

Residential streets are swept once a month from April through November. Because we can't sweep under parked cars, we need your cooperation to move your car on sweeping day. Street sweeping schedules are posted on residential signs that designate the sweeping day for each side of the block.

Sign up for street sweeping reminders at After creating a simple user profile, you can arrange to receive text and/or email reminders of your street sweeping day, as well as other city services.

  • Street sweeping reduces air and water pollution.
  • Last year, street sweeping crews swept 109,953 lane miles of Denver streets and collected 52,708 cubic yards of debris.
  • Street sweepers are 10.6 feet high and dump trucks are 12 feet high; low hanging branches present obstructions and residents should trim trees back to 13 1/2 feet above the street and alley.
  • In order to help the sweepers go through smoothly, residents should remove items from the curb on street sweeping days. 

Avoid a costly parking ticket!

Residential street sweeping season begins Wednesday, April 1, 2015, and Denver Public Works needs your help to keep the Mile High City clean! Residents are advised to pay attention to the red and white signs posted on their block for street sweeping parking restrictions so that Public Works can provide the best street sweeping service possible. Please be sure to move your vehicle according to the signs on your block to avoid a $50 parking citation.
