2016 Leaf Recycling Update: Leaf Recycle Update! During the City's free leaf recycling Saturdays in November, more than 1,030 cubic yards of leaves weighing almost 165 tons were collected. That's comparable to the weight of 30 elephants!

Annual Leaf Recycle Program

First three Saturdays in November:  9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Perma Green Organics, 5520 Harlan Street, Arvada

Stenger Soccer Complex (east entrance), 5675 Oak Street, Arvada

In an effort to keep leaves out of the landfill and off of City streets where they can block storm drains, the City partners with Perma Green Organics and Alpine Waste to provide free leaf recycling this fall. All leaves collected will be naturally recycled through composting by Perma Green and Alpine Waste. 

  • Bags must be emptied at the time of drop-off. 
  • The drop off is only for tree and bush leaves; no garden waste, large brush, branches, or tree stumps will be accepted. 
  • These drop-off sites are for Arvada residents to use during the specified hours of operation; they are not available for commercial landscaping businesses.  

For more information, please contact Sustain Arvada at 720-898-7500.
