Three weekday drop-off sites will be open this year through December 7
The leaves changing colors are a pretty sight, but when they fall, make sure they don’t end up in the trash! Give those leaves a second life through Denver’s LeafDrop program, which will turn those fallen leaves into compost. Starting Monday, October 1, three free weekday drop-off sites will be open to Denver residents through Friday, December 7. The leaves collected through this program will be turned into a high-quality compost, which will be made available for residents to purchase in May. Learn more here!
Weekday Drop-Off Sites
Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 2:00pm
Another way to be environmentally friendly, break the plastic bag habit and use paper bags when raking fallen leaves instead – paper bags can also be composted! Denver Recycles, Denver Parks & Recreation’s Be A Smart Ash program, and Ace Hardware are teaming up to give away 50,000 paper leaf bags this year! Beginning Monday, Denver residents can print or download a coupon for a free 5-pack of paper leaf bags at www.denvergov.org/leafdrop. The coupon can be redeemed at participating Denver area Ace Hardware stores.
Help us manage the LeafDrop program by following these guidelines:
