Don’t know what to do with your pumpkins after Halloween? Will County and Lewis University have partnered to offer the 4th Annual Will County collection of pumpkins for recycling on Saturday, Nov. 4th from 9 am to Noon at Lewis University, parking Lot W.
Students, parents, and residents are encouraged to pitch their pumpkins and gourds! Staff from the County will be joined by the Farm Bureau and Univ of IL Ext office to measure distance and offer prizes! Physics students will be offering a catapult option to add some thrills. Document Destruction will also be offered. Everyone is invited to bring their carved or painted pumpkins to Lewis University's "W" parking lot. Prizes will be given while available to participants - coloring books for all children, and special treats for those pitching or catapulting their pumpkin over 15 ft! Naked Pumpkins Only! No candles, bags or boxes! Limit of 5 pumpkins per person. This is a chance for a decorative natural item to be recycled, as all the pumpkins collected will be taken to a site to be mixed and composted.
