Both free services are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays through October at 1400 Caprice Drive in Castle Rock.

Please separate your items according to the service at the site you will be utilizing and be prepared to empty all containers or bags to take back home with you. Please make sure items are free of pet waste.

Free mulch is also available to residents. All items collected at the Douglas County Slash-Mulch/Green Yard Waste site are turned into mulch or compost, not taken to a landfill.
