Fall Leaf Collection Program

The 2024 Program is contingent on funding – check back for updated information.

As the seasons change, so do your yardwork needs. You can now keep leaves out of the landfill by taking them to Douglas County’s new Fall Leaf Collection site, open Saturdays through Nov. 18 at 1400 Caprice Drive in Castle Rock.

Leaves, slash, and green yard waste like grass clippings will be accepted at the County’s slash-mulch site from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 28. Then, only leaves will be accepted from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 4, Nov. 11, and Nov. 18.

In case of inclement weather, please call 303-548-7810 to ensure that the site will be open as scheduled.

Here are a few tips for a smooth drop-off:

Yard waste and leaves are professionally composted. Slash is turned into free mulch for resident pickup. Thank you for utilizing this service to keep leaves and other yard waste out of landfills and the stormwater system.
