Be Ready On Sweeping Days#


Clean streets are important for storm water drainage and keeping Fort Collins looking great.

Do not sweep leaves, branches, grass clippings, trash, rocks, and gravel into the street. This debris can damage the sweeping mechanisms on the trucks, clog stormwater drains and may send pollutants into the  Poudre River. [City Code 26-498]
