The Great Pumpkin Purge
November 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Did you know that food waste takes up to 30% of landfill space? This year, compost your pumpkin with Madison County! Composting pumpkins lets nutrients feed Illinois soil, not landfills.
Madison County Planning & Development is sponsoring The Great Pumpkin Purge on November 4 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, and it will be held in two locations simultaneously! Bring your old pumpkins (free of paint, stick-on decorations, and candles) to one of the following locations:
Alton Middle School
2200 College Avenue
Highland Elementary School
1600 Lindenthal Avenue
Enjoy prize drawings, games, and FREE hot chocolate! For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
