LeafDrop Alternatives for Composting Leaves

 

1. BRING LEAVES TO THE CHERRY CREEK RECYCLING DROP-OFF

Leaves can be dropped off for composting at the Cherry Creek Recycling Drop-offLeaves will need to be unbagged/emptied into green carts (NO PLASTIC BAGS. Brown paper bags okay.).

 

2. ENROLL IN THE DENVER COMPOSTS PROGRAM

For a quarterly fee of $29.25, the City and County of Denver will provide you with a green cart for organic materials (leaves, small branches, food scraps and non-recyclable paper) that is collected weekly. The organic material goes to a commercial facility where it gets turned into a high quality soil amendment known as compost.
