Be Ready On Sweeping Days#

Be Ready On Sweeping Days

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

  1. Subscribe to email notifications (see above)
  2. Relocate vehicles to allow Sweeper to clean gutter to gutter.
  3. If trash pick up conflicts contact your trash company to reschedule.

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] 

Trim trees to 8 feet above sidewalk and 14 feet above the street. Shrubbery cannot encroach on to any public sidewalk or block vision of drivers. [City Code 27-57]
