Compost Drop-Off in Denver


Lots of you have been asking if you can drop-off compost, so we're working on setting up compost drop-off locations in the Denver Metro area. Stay tuned on Facebook, Instagram or contact us and we'll let you know more about the drop-off locations coming to the Front Range in Colorado! In the meantime, if you're looking for a compost drop-off near you, and you live near Denver, you could also consider Rocky Mountain Compost for a compost pickup service. While we don't YET offer drop-off services, we do offer compost pickup services, making it even easier... no weekly trip needed!

Compost Pickup Services in Denver Metro Area of Colorado: We drop off composting buckets (with lids!) to your homes, apartment, school or businesses – then you can fill with your food scraps and compostables, and we pick it up and swap it out with a clean fresh bucket each week or every other week. This allows you to divert compostable materials from going into the landfills, and instead, sending them onto be recycled into gardener's gold: compost. We also offer compost pickup of brown lawn bags for homeowners to collect garden debris like leaves in the fall. However, we encourage you to mulch your flower and garden beds with leaves whenever possible, and also to mulch your lawn with the grass clippings, which cuts down on fertilizer needs and helps conserve moisture and nutrients. And, leaving the leaves plus the dried stalks and seedheads of perennial flowers such as coneflowers or Black-eyed Susans can help feed the birds over the winter months and provide winter protection for butterflies, native bees and other wildlife, all while feeding the soil. Piling leaves as winter mulch in your garden beds will feed the soil, conserve moisture, and provide habitat so that you have a healthier garden in the spring. Bonus: Composting also keeps your trash smelling MUCH nicer! No rotten banana peels or other food scraps that cause odors.
