As we enter the fall season, keeping Greenwood Village clean continues to be a high priority. To assist with these efforts, we ask that you do not place loose leaves or yard debris in the street as our sweepers are not equipped to pick them up. Moreover, this debris can be windblown or washed into the storm systems and waterways of the Village. Instead, please consider these disposal options:
- Arrange for your lawn care provider to remove the leaves when performing your yard service.
- Bag your leaves in compostable paper yard waste bags and place them out with your weekly trash pick up. These bags of leaves will end up in the landfill and paper is preferred over plastic, which never breaks down and is bad for the environment.
- Recycle your leaves at Village Greens Park. Residents only may drop off leaves that are loose or in bags any day of the week between October 11 and December 3, 2021, in the dedicated area of the north parking lot. This is an environmentally-friendly option with staff spreading and disking the material into the soil where native grass cannot be established, adding nutrients, helping with moisture retention, and provides a place for soil-borne microorganisms to live. It does not impact the landfill and is cost-effective. No bags are required, and you do not have to wait until your trash day to dispose of them.
