The Great Pumpkin Drop

November 4, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm

On Sunday, November 4, SalemRecycles, Salem Alliance for the Environment, and Black Earth Compost will team up to host The Great Pumpkin Drop, a community composting event.  Pumpkins can be brought to Dead Horse Beach for composting from 12 to 3pm.

Volunteers will be needed to:

  • direct the flow of traffic
  • encourage participants to sign up for compost pick up
  • hand out donuts and cider
  • pick up those donuts that morning from our “donut-donors” (HoneyDew, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Coffee Time).

Shifts are from 11:30am to 1:30pm and from 1:30 to 3:30pm, but your help is needed even if you only have one hour.

Contact Shelley Alpern at salpern47@gmail.com or 617-970-8944.
