Medford, MA: Pumpkin Smash
Join us for the second annual Medford Pumpkin Smash for some family-friendly destruction of your jack-o-lantern, and at the same time reduce the waste stream! Every Halloween, millions of pumpkins and gourds are hauled away to landfills where they decompose and release methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that’s harmful to the environment. Help bring Halloween to a sustainable conclusion by turning pumpkins into healthy soil!
Don’t have a pumpkin? Extras will be available for everyone to join in the fun.
Can’t stay but want your pumpkins composted? Drop them off with us! Please remove paint, candles, and decorations.
Organized by the Mothers Out Front Medford and by our sponsor and host, the West Medford Community Center. With support from Garbage to Gardens Composting Service and the City of Medford.
