Come to the Newton Pumpkin Smash on November 6

November 6 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Green your Halloween at Newton’s Pumpkin Smash on Saturday, November 6 from 1-4pm at the Newton City Hall War Memorial Circle (1000 Commonwealth Ave., Newton).

What will you do with your pumpkin after Halloween? You could put it in with your yard waste, but how much more fun would it be to smash it? This family friendly event will be focused on options to manage food waste in Newton. All smashed pumpkins will be composted by Black Earth Compost. By composting your pumpkin, you are reducing waste, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating a valuable amendment for our soils.

Don’t forget to bring your unwanted candy that will be donated to our troops. Also bring old Halloween costumes for our first ever costume swap hosted by the Newton Recycling Committee.

Pre-registration for the event is encouraged. It’s going to be a smashing time!
