[ARCHIVED] Pumpkin Composting Event, Nov. 5

Posing with pumpkins

This Halloween season, give your pumpkins an afterlife…as compost!

Community members are encouraged to bring their pumpkins and jack-o’-lanterns to the Village’s Skokie Pumpkin Smash composting event on Sunday, November 5, 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the northwest corner of Oakton Street and Floral Avenue, across from the Skokie Farmers’ Market.

Painted pumpkins are fine, but please remove:

  • Candles
  • Yarn
  • Stickers
  • Googly Eyes
  • Plastic Ears
  • Any non-biodegradable materials

Every pumpkin counts! Help us SMASH our record from last year when 4.5 tons of pumpkins were collected for composting.
