FREE Compost-Friendly Leaf Bags

We’re partnering with Denver’s Department of Transportation & Infrastructure, Denver Recycles, and Ace Hardware stores to give away FREE 5-packs of 30-gallon paper leaf bags to help Denver residents keep leaves out of landfills! Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves; saving time and reducing plastic waste.

Composting Your Leaves This Fall is as Easy as 1-2-3

  1. Redeem your leaf bag coupon at an Ace Hardware store near you. The map below features participating locations.
  2. Fill the paper bags with your leaves.
  3. Drop off your paper leaf bags at a Denver LeafDrop site near you!
