[ARCHIVED] Pumpkin Smash Recycling Event


Pumpkin Smash Recycling Event 2022

Don’t trash it, smash it! 

Each year, the Village partners with SCARCE to provide pumpkin composting after Halloween. The Pumpkin Smash is a fun way to divert pumpkins from landfills by providing drop off locations for Jack-o-lanterns to be composted. *

This year the Pumpkin Smash will be held on Saturday, November 5, from 9 am - noon, at the Bensenville Village Hall main parking lot on Addison, at 12 S Center Street.

*Pumpkins must be contaminant-free. Only pumpkins themselves can be composted. This means NO candles; yarn; stickers; googly eyes; tape; non-biodegradable materials; plastic or metal of any kind. Acrylic paint is acceptable, but no oil-based paint or permanent marker is allowed.

Bensenville Village Hall (Main Parking Lot on Addison)
12 S Center Street
Bensenville, IL 60106
