Green Yard Waste Program
Green Yard Waste will be accepted Saturdays from April through October 28, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Slash-mulch and Green Yard Waste site, located in Castle Rock, is for Douglas County residents only and is open on Saturdays from April through October.
In case of inclement weather, please call 303-663-6274 to ensure that the site will be open as scheduled.
Douglas County maintains two sites for slash drop-off, listed below. Please note that only the Castle Rock location will receive green yard waste.
Douglas County does not cut or pick up trees that are on private property.
Acceptable items at both sites include tree limbs, loose pine needles, shrubs, brush with a maximum length of 6 feet and a maximum diameter of 12 inches. All loads must be covered when they arrive at the site.
During the open season, a County operated loader will be available to load free wood chips for homeowners to use as mulch. Material can be picked up anytime during the season the site is open to accept slash.
The Site Operator has the authority to refuse loads and requires residents to reload and/or haul away materials found not to be in compliance with the regulations.
Unacceptable items include:
This site is open Saturdays year-round for brush/slash drop-off.
