City of Regina will not be holding its Pumpkin Smash event due to pandemic distance recommendations, but still encourages residents to have a green Halloween

Residents who drop off their pumpkins and gourds at the Yard Waste Depot from Oct 30 through Nov 1 will be entered to win an Apple iPad and Waste Reduction Prize Pack All eligible residents will be entered into a draw and the winner will be announced on Nov 2

Pumpkins collected at the garden waste depot will be composted at the city’s pilot kitchen and garden waste disposal site, according to a city press release.Composting the pumpkins prevents waste from coming out of the discharges, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and creates a natural fertilizer

Any pumpkin can be dropped as long as it has not been painted. All attached decorations must also be removed

People are requested to keep a safe physical distance when depositing their waste at the garden waste depot

In the past, the Smash event allowed residents to crush their pumpkin at the depot or have city staff drop it from a raised platform onto a target
