DENVER – The City of Denver is continuing its effort to keep the streets clean, but would like to remind residents of ways to remember to move their rides on sweeping days to avoid a fine.
While there are red and white signs posted on street blocks advising them of parking restrictions, Denver officials are urging residents to sign up for free sweeping reminders through Pocketgov, the city’s mobile app which provides text and email alerts to users. To sign up, click here.
Residential streets in Denver are only swept once per month where posted, but if you don’t move your vehicle on posted dates you could be ticketed with a $50 parking citation.
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
In 2016, Denver street sweeping crews swept 143,112 lane miles of Denver streets and collected 62,848 cubic yards of dirt and debris.
