Just passing along a friendly reminder from Denver’s Public Works Information Office — residential street sweeping begins Tuesday, April 2 and runs through November. In the past, Denver’s street sweepers have removed phosphorous, copper, lead, zinc, chloride and mercury off our streets, which is why it’s important for residents to move their vehicle on street sweeping day. It helps keep all that crud out of Denver’s waterways!
When residents move their vehicles, crews can sweep all the way to the curb line and provide the best service possible. Residents are urged to follow the red and white signs posted on the block for street sweeping parking restrictions to avoid getting a $50 ticket. Even if it appears a sweeper has cleaned the street, it’s still important to not park during the restricted times posted, as the sweeper may need to return to the area to make another pass.
For those who need help remembering street sweeping day, there are some tools out there! Denver residents can sign-up for text and email reminders online at www.pocketgov.com. For those who aren’t tech savvy, they can call 311 to request “no parking” calendar stickers.
