2017 Leaf Drop Times and Locations – Drop Dates:   Weekends only November 4-19.  Hours – 11 AM to 3 PM ONLY.  For more information on the LeafDrop program, visit or call 311 (720-913-1311).

PLEASE only drop your bags of leaves on the designated days.

  • Bags should be left untied if possible.
  • Make sure your leaves do not contain branches or other waste.
  • Do not drop leaves at these sites except during the times and dates specified.  Leaving your leaves at these locations during other times is considered illegal dumping and penalties may apply.

  • Leaves should never be raked or blown into the street.
