Street Sweeping

To report excess roadway debris for removal, please call 303-660-7480.

Douglas County provides street sweeping in residential areas throughout the County. Please call the phone number above if you need excess roadway debris removed.


Street Sweeping - General Information

Why does Douglas County sweep its streets?

  • Remove sand and debris that can cause unsafe conditions for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
  • Remove particulate matter to improve air quality locally and meet metro-area air quality standards.
  • Improve water quality by removing debris before it can enter storm sewers and drainage ways.

When are streets swept?

  • Arterial roadways within the urbanized unincorporated areas of the County are swept after each snowstorm throughout the winter.
  • Arterial roadways are swept at other times of the year as required. The normal interval for sweeping arterial roadways is every 2-3 weeks.
  • Residential and collector streets are swept once in the spring and again in the fall.

What residents can do to assist?

Residents can assist street sweepers by removing vehicles and other obstructions from the street. Signs are placed at the entrance to subdivisions the day before sweeping is scheduled to occur. Residents can also assist by not blowing grass clippings, leaves, and debris in the street.
