Start Time: 8:00 a.m.
End Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Check website for dropoff locations

This fall, keep your leaves out of the landfill by composting them through Denver Recycles’ LeafDrop program!  Composting leaves not only saves space in the landfill, it also creates a valuable commodity and reduces our environmental impact. Denver Recycles is providing multiple drop-off opportunities and locations this fall.  By participating in the LeafDrop program you can make less trash, keep our streets clean, and help to make compost for Denver Recycles’ Annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale in May.

LeafDrop Locations and Dates

Please only bring leaves to drop sites during specified dates and times listed below.  Dropping off leaves at other times is considered illegal dumping.

WEEKDAY DROP-OFF SITES: MONDAY – FRIDAY, October 5 - November 30, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

*Closed on Thanksgiving Day

WEEKEND DROP-OFF SITES: SATURDAYS & SUNDAYS, November 7-22, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Help us manage the LeafDrop program by following these guidelines:

  • Drop sites and free Ace Hardware paper bag offer is for Denver residents only.
  • Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins will be accepted for composting at drop sites after Halloween.
  • 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.

Break the plastic bag habit. Choose paper bags instead!

Denver Recycles and Ace Hardware stores are once again partnering to give away 20,000 paper lawn & leaf bags to make LeafDrop as convenient as possible for Denver residents. Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves, saving time and reducing plastic waste.
