DENVER – Now that Halloween is over, it’s time to take that Jack-O’-Lantern off the porch! Give it a second life and take it to a Denver LeafDrop site, so it can be composted. Beginning this Saturday, six additional LeafDrop locations will open on the weekends through Sunday, November 18. Denver residents can drop-off raked leaves and now pumpkins, which will be turned into a high-quality compost for residents to purchase at a discounted price in May.
Don’t forget, it’s not too late for Denver residents to get a free 5-pack of 30-gallon paper leaf bags at participating Ace Hardware Stores! Just download a coupon online at denvergov.org/leafdrop. Denver Recycles, Denver Parks & Recreation’s Be A Smart Ash program, and Ace Hardware are teaming up to give away 50,000 paper leaf bags this year! Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted with the leaves, which helps save time and reduce plastic waste.
Weekend Drop-Off Sites November 3 - 18
Saturdays and Sundays, 11:00am to 3:00pm
Weekday Drop-Off Sites still open through December 7
Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 2:00pm
