About the Event

Every year after Halloween, this special waste collections event provides a sustainable option for jack-o-lanterns and leaf disposal. Pumpkins, gourds, and fruit are attractants for bears and other wildlife. What's more, when organic material is sent to the landfill it breaks down into methane, a potent greenhouse gas. A much less scary, and much better option is to use these materials to feed animals or to create compost that nourishes farmers' soils!

Drop-off Details:

  •  Friday, November 4th from 12:00-6:00pm
  • Saturday, November 5th from 9:00am-4:00pm
  • Sunday, November 6th from 9:00am-12:00pm
