Denver residents may pick up free mulch and buy compost at a reduced price. The mulch for this event is made from ground up Christmas trees collected through the Treecycle program, and the compost is made in part from leaves collected from the LeafDrop program and from the organic materials collected through the Denver Composts program. 

The Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale is sponsored by the City & County of Denver’s Department of Public Works’ Denver Recycles program and Denver Parks & Recreation, in partnership with A1 Organics.
