At its June 15 business meeting, the Arvada City Council held a public hearing and approved the related ordinance and agreements to institute the system by a vote of 4 to 3. Read the June 16 press release. A recording of the meeting is available at youtu.be/UN0WuTpjK84.

Arvada residents have consistently indicated that an efficient waste hauling system is extremely important to them (85% in the 2015 and prior citizen surveys); and in the 2017 and 2019 Community surveys, two-thirds of residents supported the idea of an organized trash-hauling and recycling system. In response to results from the Arvada Citizen Survey and recommendations from the City’s Sustainability Advisory Committee, the City of Arvada explored organized waste hauling in our community anticipating this project will be safer, cleaner and less expensive for the community by:

Expected Benefits of Organized Waste Hauling:

Create fewer trucks on the road and less often for: increased safety, reduced road damage, decreased noise and air pollution

Reduce costs to resident

Increase recycling options

Increase quality of customer service

More consistent service across the community
