Yard Waste Drop-off

Información Seguida en Español

Summer Yard-Waste Drop-off is closed for the season. Fall leaf drop-off is open 24/7 through November 12, 2023.


This summer event flows into the ongoing autumnal leaf drop and holiday tree recycling programs. Throughout the year, South Canyon Landfill will accept yard waste from anyone for a fee. At the landfill there are two piles, one for brush & wood and the other for grass, leaves & small plants; both get composted. 

Yard waste drop-off events are every other Saturday (dates below) from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) at the Rodeo Lot, out near the airport. These events occur every other Saturday thereafter with the last one being September 23, 2023. Proof of residency within Glenwood Springs city limits is required to participate in this program. 

Sitio de recolección de desechos de jardín

Este evento de verano se suma a los programas otoñales de recogida de hojas y reciclaje de árboles. Durante todo el año, el vertedero de South Canyon aceptará residuos de jardinería de cualquier persona a cambio de una cuota. En el vertedero hay dos pilas, una para maleza y madera y otra para hierba, hojas y plantas pequeñas; ambas se convierten en abono.

La zona de recogida de residuos de jardinería estará abierta cada dos sábados, siendo el último el 23 de septiembre. Se requiere comprobante de residencia dentro de los límites de la ciudad de Glenwood Springs para participar en este programa.
