Dropping off leaves during other times is considered illegal dumping. Please be respectful of your neighbors and only bring your leaves during designated times.
There is another location just minutes away that is open during the week:
Cherry Creek Transfer Station, 7301 E. Jewell Ave. (Quebec St. & Cherry Creek Dr. South). Open Mon – Fri, 8 am to 2 pm, October 5 – November 30 (closed on Thanksgiving).
Break the plastic bag habit and use paper bags instead! Denver residents can pick up a free five-pack of paper leaf and yard bags at participating Denver area Ace Hardware stores with a coupon. Visit denvergov.org/leafdrop to print a coupon and see the list of participating Ace Hardware stores.
Help the city manage the LeafDrop program by following these guidelines:
- Drop sites and free Ace Hardware paper bag offer is for Denver residents only.
- 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.
