Letter: 2022 leaf recycling drop-off disaster


Another Leaf Drop Off that turned into a pain. Last year at the Harlan location, I waited in line for 30 minutes. This morning, it took 48 minutes in an almost mile long line of stop and go, crawling along while burning expensive fuel. Zero traffic control added to the issue as people bullied their way into the single line. The area for dropping off leaves only allowed for 12-13 vehicles. Add this to the snail’s pace of what appears to be never ending road repair on Ralston added to the frustration. This is a great event and its wonderful Arvada is doing this but it appears nothing has been learned from the past years of this event. For starters, we need multiple areas to drop off leaves and traffic control to help ease the growing participation in this event.
