Pumpkin Recycling Available on Nov. 3 at the Eagan Community Center

Dakota Valley Recycling will be collecting discarded Halloween pumpkins from 9 a.m. to noon.

Editor's Note: The following is a press release from Dakota Valley Recycling.

After Halloween has come and gone, what can you do with that old jack-o-lantern?

Instead of throwing it in the garbage, residents in Apple Valley, Burnsville and Eagan will be able to drop off their pumpkins for recycling during a free one-day collection coordinated by Dakota Valley Recycling (Cities of Apple Valley, Burnsville and Eagan). Residents will be able to recycle their pumpkins on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Eagan Community Center parking lot.

Pumpkins brought to this drop-off event will be collected by Dick’s Sanitation and brought to a special organics recycling facility. All candle wax must be removed and painted pumpkins will not be accepted. Kids that accompany their parents to recycle a pumpkin will get a free treat for making their Halloween “green.”

For more information, please contact Dakota Valley Recycling at 651-675-5011 (Eagan) or 952-895- 4511 (Burnsville and Apple Valley), or visit www.DakotaValleyRecycling.org.
