DENVER (CBS4)– It’s fall and those leaves aren’t going to rake themselves. The City and County of Denver has an eco-friendly way to make sure those leaves don’t end up in the landfill.

Denver’s LeafDrop program kicked off on Monday. The seasonal program allows residents to drop off bags of leaves and then those leaves will be made into compost which will be sold at the mulch giveaway in May.

LeafDrop runs through December.
