We love our pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns. But after Thanksgiving, they need to give way for holiday decorations. Don’t put them in the landfill! Instead, give them a dignified demise as compost, Nature’s fertilizer.
Bring your unwanted pumpkins to Truxtun Park, across from the skate park and just past the pool and ball fields, We’ve got bins set up to collect them. The Great Pumpkin dropoff is going on together with our kitchen scrap collection that will continue through March 30.

The first Great Pumpkin Dropoff in early November was such a success that we’re doing it again to capture the pumpkins you’re keeping through Thanksgiving. We’ll give them a new life as Pumpkin Spice Compost — a great holiday gift!
Just drop them off at Truxtun Park, near the skateboard area. Follow directional signs from Hilltop and Primrose Lane.
Small “pie pumpkins” will be donated to the Anne Arundel Food Bank.
