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
Weekday Drop-Off Sites Open Through December 2
Monday – Friday, 8:00am to 2:00pm
Denver residents can go to denvergov.org/leafdrop 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!

LeafDrop is sponsored by Denver Recycles, in partnership with A1 Organics. For more information, go to denvergov.org/denverrecycles.
