Street sweeping keeps dirt and debris out of our air and water and prevents the clogging of storm sewer inlets. DOTI asks residents to move their cars so that our sweepers can get all the way to the curb line where dirt/debris accumulates.
Also, due to mandatory furlough requirements, there will be no street sweeping or enforcement of street sweeping on the days below. Make-up street sweeping days will be scheduled, as weather permits.

Notice about our 2020 street sweeping program: Enforcement of posted parking restrictions for DOTI's street sweeping program will resume in July. Street sweeping keeps dirt and debris out of our air and water and prevents the clogging of storm sewer inlets that creates localized flooding issues. Because dirt/debris gathers primarily in the curb line of the street, DOTI is asking residents to move their cars so that street sweepers can effectively operate.
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!
