Community members can rescue their Halloween pumpkins and jack-o’-lanterns from withering on the front porch or ending up in the landfill by participating in the City’s 5th annual “It’s the Great Pumpkin Compost” collection event.

The event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 9 a.m. to noon, in the parking lot of the Morton Civic Center.
