Some needed re-leaf for Arvada

Posted

In an effort to keep leaves out of the landfill and off of City streets where they can block storm drains, free residential leaf recycling was made available the first three Saturdays in November. There is one more leaf collection day event, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Nov. 21. The leaf recycling locations are at Stenger Soccer Complex (east entrance), 5675 Oak Street, and Perma Green Organics, 5520 Harlan Street.

This event is for leaves only; no branches, woody brush, or tree stumps will be accepted. This program is not for commercial or business leaf disposal.

Due to COVID-19, leaves in plastic bags will need to be emptied by the resident. Assistance cannot be offered this year.

Muni-Code Caution

The city of Arvada asks resident to not sweep or blow leaves into the street It is against municipal code to sweep/blow leaves (or any other debris) into the streets. Not only do they find their way into storm drains, but piles of leaves can cause damage to street sweepers.
