Are there start up fees or additional fees?

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.
