Help keep Arvada Beautiful by volunteering for the Adopt-A-Street Program, and collecting litter from our community streets, parks, green belts, and waterways.

How Does Adopt a Street Work

  • Individuals or groups volunteer to pick up litter on streets in Arvada.
  • Volunteers enter into a written agreement with the City and agree to clean the adopted street or site a minimum of four times per year.
  • The City provides trash bags and safety vests and will collect the filled bags when the volunteers have completed the litter pickup.
  • Signs are posted on the adopted streets to recognize the efforts of volunteers, civic groups, churches, or businesses.

Available Streets

Routes are selected from a priority list. If you know of a street that needs to be cleaned but is not on our list, please suggest it so we can make it a route. To see current routes, and whether a route is available for adoption, explore our interactive map.
