About the Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale

Denver Recycles’ Annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale provides a great opportunity for Denver residents to save money on landscaping and to keep recycled materials utilized locally. Denver residents may pick up free mulch and buy compost at a reduced price. The mulch for this event is made from ground up Christmas trees collected through the Treecycle program, and the compost is made in part from leaves collected from the LeafDrop program and from the organic materials collected through the Denver Composts program.
