Denver Recycles and our local University Hills Ace Hardware store is once again partnering to give away paper lawn & leaf bags to make LeafDrop as convenient as possible for Denver residents. By participating in the LeafDrop program you make less trash, keep our streets clean, and help to make compost for Denver Recycles’ Annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale in May.
To get your FREE 5-pack of paper lawn & leaf bags, visit DenverGov.org/LeafDrop and print out the special LeafDrop coupon. Then take your coupon to the University Hills Ace Hardware store to get your free bags (no purchase necessary; while supplies last; limit one free pack per household). Additional paper lawn & leaf bags can be purchased for about $2.50 per 5-pack.
The closest LeafDrop location to University Hills is the Cherry Creek Transfer Station at 7301 E. Jewell Ave. (Quebec St. & Cherry Creek Dr. South).
- All leaves brought during the week must be in secured bags. Paper bags are preferred because they are compostable.
- Dropping off leaves at other times is considered illegal dumping.
- Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins will be accepted for composting at drop sites after Halloween.
- Make sure leaves do not contain branches or other materials.
- Never rake or blow leaves into the street as this clogs storm sewers and street sweepers.
