Broomfield’s Street Sweeping Program runs year-round to provide safe conditions for all modes of transportation by removing debris and other material from the roadways and bike lanes. Sweeping also protects air and water quality and prevents debris from entering storm drains which comply with state and federal stormwater quality requirements and BMC 13-40-070.
The program’s goal is to sweep residential streets four times per year, main arterials six times per year, and as needed for special events. It is our standard practice to sweep snow routes after snow events. Additional sweeping may occur in areas experiencing heavy debris. Residential routes and schedules have been designed not to interfere with trash collection.
Please help the street sweepers do their job by removing vehicles, trash cans, basketball hoops, and other obstructions from the street including grass clippings, or disposing of yard waste, leaves, and branches into the street for a sweeper to clean up. It is also helpful to keep tree branches and bushes that extend beyond the face of the curb trimmed back to the face of the curb 14 feet high from the street surface so sweepers can sweep up to the curb line.
Please keep a safe distance from the sweeper, and avoid maneuvering around it.
Broomfield Parks Maintenance provides sweeping services for public bike paths and sidewalks on an as-needed basis. Residents and business owners are responsible for sidewalks adjacent to their property within the public right-of-way.
