County Hosts Pumpkin Recycling Event

November 2, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
Pumpkin Compost

For the second year, residents of Teton County will have an option for the disposal of their jack-o-lantern rather than simply throwing it into a dumpster.  Through Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling in cooperation with Terra Firma Organics the used-up pumpkins will turned into compost at the Great Pumpkin Round-Up Saturday.  From 10:00 am – 3:00 pm residents are encouraged to bring their jack-o-lanterns to the Teton County Rodeo Grounds to dispose of the gord and participate in pumpkin squashing activities, treats and prizes as well.  ISWR Division Chief Heather Overholser says last year the county collected 4,120 pounds of pumpkins which were composted by Terra Firma Organics rather than thrown in a landfill.  She says she anticipates even more this year.  Terra Firma Organics sells its finished compost at the trash transfer station, as well as at local gardening retailers.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
