Denver Leaf Drop, City of Denver, Denver CO , Denver Residents 


November in Denver means lots and lots of leaves for residents.  The City of Denver has come up with a solution for Denver Residents with an excess of falling leaves, The Denver Leaf Drop.  The city has several drop off sites where residents can take their un-wanted leaves which are then turned into compost and sold back to residents in May at Denver’s Annual Mulch Give Away and Compost Sale. 

In an effort to reduce the amount of plastic bags that are used to collect leaves each year, Ace Hardware is giving 5 free paper bags per person away when they preset this coupon.  Paper bags can be composted right along with the leaves contained in them.  Ace Hardware is running the promotion while their supplies last, however the same bags are only about $2.50 each so they are very affordable even if they are not free.

Weekend Drop Off Locations (Open November 8,9,15,16 11am-3pm)

The Denver Leaf Drop is a great way to get rid of all of leaves in your yard while also putting them to good use.  There are a few things to remember before you head over to one of the drop off locations. First, make sure there are no tree branches or pieces of garbage mixed in with your bags of leaves.  Also remember to only drop off leaves during the specified times.  Leaving them at the drop off sites during any other time is against the law.  This program is only available to Denver residents and those taking advantage of the drop off sites may be asked to prove their residency.
