Residential seasonal street sweeping begins Tuesday, April 4, and Denver Public Works needs your help to keep the Mile High City clean! Denver Public Works 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.
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. Last year, Denver street sweeping crews swept 143,112 lane miles of Denver streets and collected 62,848 cubic yards of dirt and debris.
