Pumpkin Dumpin’

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Let your old pumpkins and jack-o’-lanterns decompose the natural way by dropping them off at the Nature Center for composting.

By composting your pumpkin, you are keeping waste out of landfills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating a natural fertilizer for our soils. 

The Dunwoody Nature Center will be accepting your old pumpkins on Sunday, November 1st. Check our website and social media for more information about this event as it is announced. Suggested donation of $1 per pumpkin.

Plain, clean pumpkins of any size will be accepted. Any pumpkin decorations such as candles, yarn, stickers or other decorations should be removed prior to drop-off.
