The Village of Carol Stream is partnering with eWorks, SCARCE, Accurate Document Destruction, Flood Brothers Disposal, and DuPage County to host a Pumpkin, Textiles, Electronics Recycling and Shredding Event. This event is open to residents and non-residents.

Pumpkin Smash

Green Your Halloween! Drop off your pumpkins for composting at this event. Composting is nature’s form of recycling – it promotes healthy soil, water, and air, saves landfill space, and reduces your climate change impact. So don’t trash it, smash it!
