The City of Elgin will be holding the annual Pumpkin Smash event on Saturday, November 5th, 2022 from 9am-noon. The event will take place at two locations: Hawthorne Hills Nature Center (28 Brookside Drive, Elgin, IL), and the southwest corner of N Grove Avenue and Kimball Street (250 N Grove Ave, Elgin, IL).
Don't let your waste haunt you! Bring your pumpkins so they can be composted instead of landfilled.
In 2021, we collected over 6 TONS of pumpkins! Can we beat this number? Bring your pumpkins to either location to help us 'smash' this goal!
