Residential seasonal street sweeping season runs from April through November.

Notice about our 2020 street sweeping program:  Denver’s street sweeping program will begin April 1; however, due to COVID-19 stay at home restrictions, the city will not enforce parking restrictions related to street sweeping for 30 days. People who are able to move their cars on street sweeping day are asked to do so to allow street sweepers to reach the curb line & more effectively sweep. 

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 2019, Denver street sweeping crews swept 174,661 lane miles of Denver streets and alleys — collecting 75,555 cubic yards of dirt and debris! 

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
