Collector and residential streets and bike lanes are swept four times per year.
This program's mission is to clean city streets and bike lanes as required to provide safe conditions for all modes of transportation. Clean streets support good air quality standards and stormwater quality services to the residents of Fort Collins.
Where and when we sweep?
- Collector and residential streets and bike lanes are swept four times per year.
- The Downtown area is swept twice a week.
- Major arterial streets and bike lanes are swept every two weeks.
- Sweeping is based on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather. If resources allow, we will pick-up sweeping streets missed due to inclement weather.
What you can do to maximize a clean sweep
Citizens can help the street sweepers do their job on scheduled street sweeping days by removing vehicles, trash cans, basketball hoops and other obstructions from the street. It is also helpful if citizens keep tree branches and bushes trimmed back so sweepers can sweep up to the curb line. Residents, business owners and landscape companies can also help out by not blowing grass clippings or disposing yard waste, leaves and branches into the street for a sweeper to clean up.
