On Saturday, November 6, 2021, we hosted a pumpkin smash recycling event for the first time in the Village of Lombard. We collected over 800 pumpkins which totaled 5.20 tons of compostable pumpkins! That's equal to over 10,000 pounds of pumpkins. Thank you to everyone in the community who supported this event. Smash events like this help keep pumpkins out of landfills and reduce the amount of harmful greenhouse gasses being released into the environment.

Check out SCARCE's blog post about the event, which featured LJWC.

Save the date! On November 5, 2022 Lombard Juniors will once again be hosting this fantastic composting event for our community.

Thank you to our sponsors!
