Pumpkins

DON’T LET YOUR WASTE HAUNT YOU:
RECYCLE YOUR JACK-O’-LANTERN

Kane County will offer its first-ever pumpkin-recycling event this year to help reduce waste.


“Jack-o’-lanterns, pumpkins and decorative squashes are highly compostable,” Kane County Recycling Coordinator Jennifer Jarland said. “And it is a real shame to just send them to a landfill, when the nutrients they contain could instead be returned to soil that will grow more healthy food!”

Jack-O’-Lantern Recycling Event
  • When: 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 5
  • Where: Pushing the Envelope Farm, 1700 Averill Road in Geneva.
  • What: Kane County will be accepting pumpkins and squashes for composting right on a farm! It is very important to keep it contaminant-free; just like food scrap composting.
  • Cost: Free to residents of Kane County.
What’s not recycled? Anything attached to or inside the Jack-o’-lantern — candles, yarn hair, stickers, googly eyes, plastic ears or plastic of any kind — cannot be recycled. Only the jack-o’-lanterns themselves can be composted! Click here for more information.
