Pumpkin Smash 2020
November 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CST| Free
What will you do with your pumpkin after Halloween? Don’t let it rot in landfill. Bring your jack-o-lantern to the annual Pumpkin Smash to be composted – nature’s method of recycling. Participating locations can be found throughout Illinois and across the country. It’s going to be a smashing time!
Come smash your pumpkin or simply drop it off and we’ll do it for you. By composting your pumpkin, you are keeping waste out of landfills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating a natural fertilizer for our soils.
Note: Remove candles and decorations (stickers, yarn, googly eyes, etc) before dropping off. Pumpkins are only accepted from 9am-12pm on November 7th unless otherwise noted.
Health & Safety Note: In light of the coronavirus pandemic, we ask all hosts and attendees to wear masks and practice social distancing.
