Leaf Drop 2017
|Just Released from the City of Denver
Weekday drop-off sites open through December 8
DENVER — The leaves are changing colors and will soon fall, but make sure they don’t fall on Denver’s streets or in the trash! Starting Monday, October 2, turn fallen leaves into compost through Denver Recycles’ LeafDrop program. Weekday drop-off sites will be open to Denver residents through Friday, December 8. The leaves collected through this program will be turned into a high-quality compost, which will be made available for Denver residents to purchase in May.
Weekday Drop-Off Sites
Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 2:00pm
Please note, all leaves must be in secured bags (paper bags are preferred) and dropped-off during hours of operation, otherwise it is considered illegal dumping.
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 and Ace Hardware are teaming up to give away 25,000 paper leaf bags this year! Beginning Monday, Denver residents can print 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:
Weekend LeafDrop sites will be coming soon in November! More details on dates and locations can be found atwww.denvergov.org/leafdrop.
LeafDrop is sponsored by Denver Recycles, in partnership with Ace Hardware and A1 Organics. For more information, please visitwww.denvergov.org/DenverRecycles.
