City hosting free leaf and pumpkin composting event for residents

October 9, 2023 at 8:39 am

Castle Pines residents are invited to recycle leaves and pumpkins for composting on Saturday, Nov. 4. Have fun with your leaves, jump on them in piles, or re-use them in bags for Halloween props to help us crush them! Next, bring the leaves in large paper bags that you will keep after emptying your leaves. No bags will be accepted at the event, all leaves will be dumped out of bags. Leaves are collected and used by local farms as a soil amendment and need to be as clean as possible. No garden waste, large brush, branches, or tree stumps are accepted as part of the leaf collection event (no commercial landscaping).

The event is available and free to Castle Pines residents! View the event information sheet for more information on what is accepted.

Saturday, Nov. 4
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Elk Ridge Park | 7005 Mira Vista Lane

 

Brought to you in partnership with Castle Rock Composting.
