DENVER – Starting this weekend, there will be more options around the city where Denver residents can take leaves after they rake them! On Saturday, October 31, five more Denver LeafDrop locations will open for the next three weekends to allow residents to drop-off raked leaves to be composted for free. In addition, Jack-O’-Lanterns still sitting on the front porch after Halloween will be accepted for composting too! Compost created through Denver’s LeafDrop Program will be made available for residents to purchase at a discounted rate in the spring to help their gardens thrive.
Weekend LeafDrop Locations
Open Saturdays and Sundays until November 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
When dropping-off raked leaves, paper bags are preferred - they can also be composted! Denver residents can visit denvergov.org/leafdrop to download a coupon for a free five-pack of paper leaf bags at participating Ace Hardware Stores.
