Pumpkin Smash 2017

Pumpkin Smash flier

Bring your jack-o-lanterns to Village Hall's parking lot for a smashing — and environmentally friendly — good time.

In partnership with SCARCE (School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education) and the Environmental Concerns Commission, the Village of Villa Park is hosting its annual Pumpkin Smash on Saturday, November 4, from 9 a.m. to noon. Please remove all decorations, including candles, yarn, stickers, googly eyes, and plastic ears, from pumpkins. Only paint allowed.

Last year, Pumpkin Smash events across the state of Illinois collected 9.31 tons of pumpkins. These jack-o-lantern remains are used for composting, which reduces waste and replenishes the nutrients in our soil.
