Help keep Steele’s leaves out of the landfill by bringing them to Denver LeafDrop at Veteran’s Park, located just east of South High School. Steele’s facility manager, Qendrim, will place bagged leaves (paper and plastic) on the grass behind our school dumpsters. If you have room in your car, please grab a bag or two and take them to LeafDrop on November 17 or 18th from 11AM to 3PM.
While you are at it, bring your leaves to LeafDrop too. Leaves in plastic or paper bags are accepted, but paper bags are preferred. All Denver residents can get FREE 5-packs of 30-gallon paper leaf bags at participating Ace Hardware stores. Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves, which reduces plastic waste and makes the LeafDrop program more efficient.
Composting your fall leaves is as easy as 1-2-3:
- Redeem your leaf bag coupon at an Ace Hardware store near you.
- Fill the paper bags with your leaves.
- Drop off your paper leaf bags at a Denver LeafDrop site near you.
Leaves taken to designated drop sites during LeafDrop will be commercially composted, and the final compost product will be sold to Denver residents at Denver Recycles’ annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale in early May.
