After Halloween, don’t be haunted by what to do with your old
pumpkin. Instead of throwing Mr. Jack-o-Lantern in the garbage, drop off your
pumpkins at the city’s free compost collection event.
Please NO painted pumpkins, candles, wax, or other non-organic material.
The goal of this event is to reduce the amount of organics that end up in our landfills each year. When food waste goes into the landfill it releases methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. By composting food and other organic waste we help cut down on these emissions and provide compost that can be used as fertilizer in the future.
This event is part of the City of Northfield’s strategic goal to reduce climate change impact and to make the community more resilient and sustainable.
