I wanted to reach out to you all to let you know about the 2019 Pumpkin Purge event happening on Nov. 2nd from 9am-11am at Highland Middle School!
This event is open to all county residents and will also be going on at the same time at Alton Middle School and Willoughby Farms in Collinsville.
The Pumpkin Purge is a pumpkin composting event that helps to raise awareness about organic waste reduction and gets residents of all ages involved. Residents are invited to bring old pumpkins, gourds, and jack o’ lanterns for composting, rather than sending them to local landfills. Residents are invited to play pumpkin-themed games and enter to win raffle prizes from local vendors, such as certificates to local bakeries or environmentally-themed prize items.
