DENVER – Is your Jack-O’-Lantern still sitting on the porch from Halloween? Give it a second life and take it to a Denver LeafDrop site for composting! Beginning this Saturday, November 4, six neighborhood LeafDrop locations will open for three weekends. Denver residents can drop off raked leaves and pumpkins, which will be turned into a high-quality compost for residents to purchase in May.
Weekend Drop-Off Sites November 4 – 19
Saturdays and Sundays, 11:00am to 3:00pm
Weekday Drop-Off Sites Open Through December 8th
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! It’s not too late for Denver residents to print a coupon at www.denvergov.org/leafdrop to get a free 5-pack of paper leaf bags at participating Denver area Ace Hardware stores. Denver Recycles has teamed up with Ace Hardware to give away 25,000 paper leaf bags this year!

LeafDrop is sponsored by Denver Recycles, in partnership with Ace Hardware and A1 Organics. For more information, please visit www.denvergov.org/DenverRecycles.
