Reminder about street sweeping and parking restrictions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 7, 2020
Denver Urges Residents to Remember their Street Sweeping Day to Keep Streets Clean and Avoid a Parking Citation

Denver – Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) is reminding residents that, this month, it is resuming enforcement of parking restrictions in support of the city’s street sweeping program. Denver asks people to move their cars so that its sweepers can get all the way to the curb line where dirt and debris accumulates.

DOTI suspended enforcement of parking restrictions at the start of the street sweeping season in April due to COVID-19 Stay at Home Orders and resumed enforcement on July 1, writing 3,000 warnings last Wednesday to residents who did not move their cars (note: there was no sweeping on July 2 or July 3 due to employee furloughs and observance of the holiday).

Enforcement agents will be back out today, writing warnings for one more day, as we work to remind people they need to check the red and white signs on their blocks and remember to move their cars on their street sweeping day. Residents can also visit Pocketgov to check their sweeping schedule and sign up for reminders.

Street sweeping plays a critical role in keeping our city clean. Last year, the sweepers collected 75,555 cubic yards of dirt and debris off Denver streets, keeping it out of our air and water.
