[ARCHIVED] Smashing Pumpkins

Pile of Jack-o-Lanterns

Retire your Jack-o-Lantern and other live pumpkin decor in an environmentally friendly way by dropping them off at La Grange Park's Pumpkin Recycling Event. Sponsored by the La Grange Park Sustainability Commission and the Village of La Grange EQCC, this event will collect live pumpkins and then transport them to an area farm for composting. Why compost pumpkins? By composting we don't waste the nutrients and water in our retired Jack-O-Lanterns. Instead they are returned to the soil where they will nourish new plant life. In landfills decaying pumpkins produce methane gas, which is not good for the atmosphere. Please click here to view the flyer for more information.
