Whether it be pie baking, family gathering, turkey roasting, or gift giving, there is no doubt we are entering a festive time of year! Once the pumpkins start to decay, the turkey has been successfully carved, and the presents are all unwrapped, what do you do with all the “stuff” that is leftover?

With holidays and celebrations come some unique environmental impacts. Join Recycling Coordinator Jane Wilch and Climate Action Coordinator Sarah Gardner for a pumpkin spice-themed discussion of all things holidays. You’ll learn what to do with those pumpkins, turkey bones, that shiny gift wrap, and more, and also what happens to the materials after they are placed at the curb or taken to a drop-off location.
