LeafDrop 2018: Drop Off Your Leaves for FREE This Fall!

Keep your leaves out of the landfill this fall by bringing them to a LeafDrop site near you! By participating in the LeafDrop program, Denver residents decrease their environmental impact, help to keep our streets clean, and save space in the landfill. Leaves taken to designated LeafDrop locations will be commercially composted, and the final compost product will be sold to Denver residents at Denver Recycles’ annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale in early May.

Bring your Leaves in Paper Bags! Denver Recycles, Be A Smart Ash, and Ace Hardware stores are teaming up to give away FREE 5-packs of 30-gallon paper leaf bags to help Denver residents keep leaves and plastic out of the landfill. Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves, saving time and reducing plastic waste.

Composting Your Leaves this Fall is as Easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Display the leaf bag coupon at an Ace Hardware store to get a FREE 5-pack of paper leaf bags. Coupons are available at DenverGov.org/LeafDrop.
  2. Fill paper bags with leaves.
  3. Drop your paper leaf bags off at a LeafDrop site near you.

Remember: 

  • LeafDrop is for Denver residents only.
  • Pumpkins are accepted too.
  • Only bring leaves to designated LeafDrop sites during the specified dates and times. Dropping leaves off at other times is considered illegal dumping.
  • Never rake or blow leaves into the street, as this will clog storm drains and street sweepers.
