DENVER – It’s street sweeping season again, Denver!

Denver Public Works sweeping trucks will be back out in force Tuesday cleaning up the city’s streets, which means if you park on the city’s streets, you’ll have to move your car or be fined.

The city cleans streets between April and November each year, and swept up 62,330 cubic yards of dirt and other debris in 2017.

Red and white signs are posted on most street blocks signaling when they get swept, but residents can also sign up for free reminders through Pocketgov, the city’s mobile app that provides text and email alerts. To sign up, click here. People can also get calendar sticker reminders by calling 311.

Streets are swept once a month, but if drivers don’t move their vehicles for the dates and times posted on street signs, they are liable to face a $50 ticket.
