No, there are no startup, administrative or fuel fees for residents joining the program. The service level fees published are what you will pay for your selected service level. The fees listed are monthly. They will appear on your bi-monthly City of Arvada utility bill. You may change your service level once per year for no additional fee.
Additional services (such as on-demand curbside bulky item pick up, additional waste or recycling carts and bag tags for extra bags of trash) are available for additional fees should you choose to use them.
There are two options available:
*Please bring the exact amount in cash or pay by check. Change cannot be provided.
Residents are also encouraged to consider leaving grass clippings on the lawn for healthier grass. Leaves can also be mulched and left on the lawn.
Residents can change their service level (bigger or smaller carts) once per year for free. Additional service level changes in a one year period will incur a $15 fee for cart delivery.

Please call Republic at 720-898-7575 to coordinate either changes or additional carts.
The City’s waste hauling contract includes a 99.9% service guarantee and penalties for poor service or non-compliance.

The organized waste hauling ordinance calls for all eligible households to have access to curbside recycling. That means having a recycling cart is an important part of the program and a recycling cart will be provided to all households. Other haulers are likewise now required to provide customers with recycling carts.
Customer Service staff are available to assist you in learning how to recycle. No one will be forced to place their recycle cart out for collection.

Residents who choose to hire their own hauler receive benefits from the City’s waste hauling program such as access to yearly bulky item and fall leaf drop off events.
They also benefit from reduced truck traffic in their neighborhoods, which will reduce wear and tear on the roads as well as reduce noise and air pollution. This is a community program that offers benefits for the entire community. The City worked hard to negotiate a lower minimum service rate for residents that choose to hire a different hauler. Other cities have higher minimum service rates.
