Bring your Leaves in Paper Bags

Denver Recycles, Be A Smart Ash, and Ace Hardware stores are teaming up to give away FREE 5-packs of 30-gallon paper leaf bags to help Denver residents keep leaves out of the landfill! Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves; saving time and reducing plastic waste.

About LeafDrop

LeafDrop is a season program offered by Denver Recycles that turns leaves into compost. The final compost product is made available at a discounted price to Denver residents at the Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale each May.

DENVER COMPOSTS

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.

Remember

  • LeafDrop is for Denver residents only
  • We’ll compost pumpkins after Halloween too.
  • Only bring leaves to drop sites during the specified dates and times. Dropping off leaves at other times is considered illegal dumping.
  • Never rake or blow leaves into the street as this clogs storm sewers and street sweepers.
