Pumpkin Compost Collection Sat., Nov. 6
Is your pumpkin getting soft and gooey? That’s only natural! Did you know that pumpkins left to rot in the trash will release methane and methane is a stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide? Your pumpkin can be turned back into nutrient-rich soil when composted.
The Webster Groves Sustainability Commission and the Public Works Department is hosting the first Annual Pumpkin Compost Collection. Please keep your pumpkin from the landfill and bring it to the Moss Field parking lot on Saturday, November 6 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
