Enforcement of posted parking restrictions for street sweeping will resume in July.

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.

Employee furlough days: no street sweeping or enforcement of posted sweeping:

  • Thursday, July 2 (make up sweeping day is scheduled for July 29 with no enforcement)
  • Friday, September 4 (make up sweeping day is scheduled for September 28 with no enforcement)
  • Friday, October 16 (make up sweeping day is scheduled for October 29 with no enforcement)
  • Friday, November 27
  • Thursday, December 24

Residential seasonal street sweeping season runs from April through November.

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! 

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
