The city's free leaf-recycling program has ended for 2021
A1 Organics Mountain States accepts organic material/yard waste for $12 per cubic yard.
Please do not blow leaves into the street.
Not only is it a safety hazard for cyclists riding in the street, leaves can clog storm drains and could cause street flooding. It is a city code violation and could result in a ticket.
The cities of Littleton and Englewood continue the annual leaf-recycling program for the south metro area. In the previous twenty five years of the program, 33,500 cubic yards of leaves have been recycled. Tire recycling is no longer offered.
