Denver's LeafDrop 2016 Program to Open Weekend Drop-Off Sites!

Go to for information about locations and hours for the current year!

DENVER ­– Denver residents who are spending part of the weekend raking leaves are in luck! Starting Saturday, November 5, six neighborhood LeafDrop locations will open for the next three weekends. Denver residents can drop-off raked leaves to be composted, and Jack-O’-Lanterns still sitting on the porch from Halloween will be accepted too! Materials composted during the LeafDrop Program will be made available for Denver residents to purchase in May at Denver Recycles’ Annual Mulch Giveaway and Compost Sale.


Weekend Drop-Off Sites Open November 5 – 20

Saturdays and Sundays, 11:00am to 3:00pm

  • Cherry Creek Transfer Station – 7301 E. Jewell Ave. (Quebec St. & Cherry Creek Dr. South)
  • Havana Nursery – 10450 Smith Rd. (Just south of I-70 on Havana St.)

Denver residents can go to to receive a coupon for a free 5-pack of paper leaf bags from participating Ace Hardware stores. Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted too!


Help us manage the LeafDrop program by following these guidelines:

  • Make sure leaves do not contain branches or other materials.
  • Never rake or blow leaves into the street as this clogs storm sewers and street sweepers.
