City of Urbana Pumpkin Smash Event November 4th at the Landscape Recycling Center

The city of Urbana is hosting a Pumpkin Smash event at the Landscape Recycling center on Saturday, November 4th from 11 am to 3 pm. This is a free event to bring your old October gourds to the food compost pile and smash them up, while learning about local compost and organics recycling!

UIUC’s Students for Environmental Concerns (SECS) group is also going to set up pumpkin collecting stations around campus at FAR/PAR, Channing Murray, Ikenberry Commons, and Grainger Library and collect pumpkins on November 4th from 10 am – 2 pm. If you’re a student who has a pumpkin to get rid of but can’t personally get to the Landscape Recycling Center, you can drop it off at one of these pumpkin collecting stations.
