Pumpkin Smash 2020
Drop-Off ONLY Sorry no smashing this year due to Covid-19
Saturday, November 7th
Time: 11 am - 2 pm
“Don’t Trash it, Smash it at Home” We're encouraging virtual smashing parties - send us videos on Facebook @growamsterdamny where you clobber your pumpkin at home, and bring us the remains (sounds spooky).
Let's continue to divert pumpkins from the Landfill.
We'll also collect un-smashed pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, corn stalks, and straw bales too!
Please remove all decorations and candles.
Pumpkins will be composted by the Compost Works Initiative @ Grow Amsterdam NY - by composting your pumpkins you are keeping organic waste out of the landfills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating compost, a natural fertilizer, for the Esperanza Verde, the city's new park at 285 East Main St.
