Once again, we’re excited to partner with our friends at Denver Public Works, Denver Recycles and Ace Hardware to give away FREE 5-packs of compostable 30-gallon paper leaf bags to help Denver residents keep leaves out of landfills!
Unlike plastic bags, these brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves; saving time and reducing plastic waste in our landfills. This fall, Be a Smart Ash and compost your leaves.

- Redeem your leaf bag coupon at an Ace Hardware store near you by printing it or showing it to a cashier. See a map of participating locations here.
- Fill the paper bags with your leaves.
- Drop off your paper leaf bags at your nearest Denver LeafDrop site.
