Adopt a Street Program

The Adopt-A-Street Program is when volunteers collect litter from our community streets, parks, green belts, and waterways. Individuals or groups can volunteer to pickup litter on streets in Arvada all year round.   Here's how it works:   Volunteers enter into a written agreement with the City stating that they will be responsible for cleaning up litter on a segment of a particular street four times per year.   The sites are selected from a priority list, and the volunteers agree to clean the adopted street or site a minimum of four times per year.   The City provides trash bags and safety vests, and will collect the filled bags when the volunteers have completed the litter pickup.   One of the clean-ups is targeted to be done in conjunction with Fillup-A-Can Day every spring, and events like  Earth Day to Trails Day.  Permanent signs are posted on the adopted streets to recognize the efforts of volunteers. Civic groups, churches, businesses, or individuals can adopt streets. There are no restrictions on individual or group name advertising on the signs.  Some restrictions apply and a maximum of 30 characters.   The program is designed to help keep Arvada clean and attractive for its citizens. It is easy to participate in the Adopt-A-Street effort for the City of Arvada. Simply, click on the service request and fill out the form.  If you have any further questions, call 720-898-7760.
