City of Arvada's Waste Hauling Program

Large Item Drop Off Events

The City of Arvada is excited to host our first Large Item Drop Off events, supported by fees from the Waste and Recycling Program. The large item drop off events are new events for the City of Arvada. The City team has engaged with contractors, partner organizations and surrounding cities to learn best practices and potential challenges. We are committed to providing the best possible event experience and applying anything we learn to future events to continue to improve.

Learn more about waste hauling

The City of Arvada is implementing a new organized waste hauling program. While the program does not begin until July 2021, residents are encouraged to learn more about upcoming milestones on the Waste Hauling program page. 

Between now and the start of the program in July 2021, the City of Arvada will not provide trash or recycling services to Arvada residents. Residents are required to contract with a licensed trash hauler for those services.  Download the PDF of Licensed Recycling/Trash Haulers. 

Waste + recycling rates

The City's program offers four service levels to suit your waste generation habits. Visit our Republic Services/Arvada rates page to view service level details and rates. 

Service guide

With a new service, you may have questions about acceptable recycling materials, what can go in your waste cart, and other service details. The City and Republic put together a service guide to help you learn all about the new program. You can download the guide and find other resources on our Republic Services/Arvada resources page.
