Street Sweeping Requests 

City streets are swept according to seasonal schedules. To report a street that needs to be swept, please call the Street Division at 720-898-7720. 

Street Sweeping Schedule

Summer:  Mid April through Mid October

Each City street is swept every four to six weeks.

Fall:  Mid October to Mid November

Our priority is to reduce the amount of leaves that end up in the storm sewers.  Areas of the City with many mature trees are usually swept more than once but we try to sweep all of the City streets at least once during this period. 

Winter:  Mid November to Mid April

Our goal is to sweep snowplow routes within four days after each winter storm so that the City is in compliance with Denver regional area air quality guidelines. Very cold weather and/or continuous snowstorms may delay sweeping. Residential streets are not on our snowplow routes but we attempt to sweep all residential streets at least once from mid-March to the end of April.

Central Business District  

Olde Town Arvada streets are swept every two weeks between 4 and 6 a.m., weather permitting. High volume traffic intersections and City facility parking lots are also swept every two weeks in the early morning. 

You Can Help!

  • Raking or blowing leaves into the street is not allowed by the City.  The street sweepers will sweep around piles or a row of leaves in the street.
  • Ttrim trees and shrubs to a height of 12 feet above the curb to avoid damaging equipment. The street sweepers will sweep around low hanging branches.
  • Trim shrubs and vegetation back from the curb.  The street sweepers will sweep around vegetation that overhangs the curb and is in the gutter area.
  • If possible, move vehicles off the street.

Sidewalk Sweeping 

Maintenance and sweeping of sidewalks is the responsibility of the property owner according to City code.  The Street Maintenance Division sweeps sidewalks and walkways on arterial streets.
