New – Pumpkin Collection for Composting
November 1 – 5 at the Northfield Community Center

Drop your pumpkin off in the dumpster located in the southeast corner of the parking lot
Painted pumpkins will be accepted, but make sure to remove any non-organic decorations, such as candles and googly eyes!

Pumpkins thrown in your garbage are sent to a landfill, where they decompose without oxygen and produce methane gas - a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide! Pumpkins are full of nutrients that make great garden compost.
Go Green Northfield, the Northfield Park District, and the Village of Northfield are partnering to compost those pumpkins instead!
