Pumpkin Smash

November 4, 2023, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Village of Bartlett will be hosting its annual pumpkin composting event with this year’s Pumpkin Smash! SCARCE, a nonprofitorganization committed to keeping “stuff” out of the landfill by reusing or recycling, first brought this event to DuPage County in 2014! Since then, the annual Pumpkin Smash has successfully diverted more than 18 tons of pumpkins from landfills.

Residents can bring their pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns for composting in order to return nutrients back to the soil and lower methane gas production in landfills. Regular or decorated pumpkins are allowed, but please remove yarn, stickers or any plastic items before composting.
