Pumpkin Composting

Go Green after Halloween & Compost your Pumpkins 

November 1-15

Northfield Community Center Parking Lot

Don’t throw away your pumpkins this fall, compost them! Pumpkins are full of nutrients that make great compost for the garden.

Drop your pumpkin off in the dumpster located in the parking lot of the Community Center (401 Wagner Road) November 1-15. Painted pumpkins will be accepted, but make sure to remove any non-organic decorations, such as candles and googly eyes!

This environment-friendly opportunity is presented by Go Green Northfield, the Northfield Park District, and the Northfield Park District.
