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.


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.
