The fun-filled event will be held at the Itasca Public Works complex located at 411 N. Prospect Ave., from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The Pumpkin Smash is not your average post-Halloween gathering; it’s a community-driven initiative with a mission. Our goal is to responsibly return nutrients to the earth by diverting pumpkins from landfills. Instead of tossing away those jack-o'-lanterns, we provide a convenient drop-off location for residents to compost them. This eco-friendly spectacle unfolds each year on the Saturday following Halloween, bringing together the community for a day of eco-conscious fun.
To participate in this program, please clean your pumpkins and remove any candles, yarn, stickers, or other decorations before dropping them off.
If you would like to contribute even more, consider volunteering by contacting Public Works Superintendent Brian Yarbrough at email@example.com.
