Pumpkin Smash

13 November @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm GMT


Pumpkin Lantern Smash and Compost

Schools, Clubs, Community Groups and Individuals are asked to bring their Halloween Pumpkin lanterns to smash and compost them on our Community Compost site.  Pumpkins can be collected from local schools etc in advance (contact carryoncomposting1@gmail.com). This will reduce the waste sent to landfill and in a small way help the environment and reduce greenhouse gases. As importantly smashing a lot of pumpkins can be fun. We had over 100 pumpkins at our last smash in 2019
