City of Arvada's Waste Hauling Program
Waste & Recycling container placement & storage
Arvada Municipal Code Chapter 18, Sect. 18-517 requires waste and recycling containers to be stored behind the front plane of a residence when not placed out for collection. Appropriate places to store your containers are on the side of your house, in a garage, or in the back or side yard.
- Containers should be placed out by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
- Containers should be placed as close to curbside as possible without obstructing the sidewalk.
- Municipal Code requires that containers may not be curbside for longer than 24 consecutive hours per week.
Find your service day
The City of Arvada has made available a searchable map where you can find your collection day and recycling week color. PDF calendars for each day/recycling week are available on the Republic Services/Arvada website.
