We’re all about helping our customers be more sustainable, so we are bringing back our annual pumpkin drop off for 2020.
We have once again partnered with locally owned Hillside Solutions to let friends and customers drop pumpkins in the back parking lot of our Dundee Location. Every pumpkin collected at Dundee Bank will be sent to Soil Dynamics Compost Farm, the Omaha area’s only industrial composting facility.
Your pumpkins will give microbial life an epic feast that will result in nutrient-dense soil that will eventually make its way back into community yards and gardens.
By composting your pumpkins, you are supporting local composting programs, helping Omaha grow healthier plants, and supporting local sustainability.
Here are a few things to remember:
- No glitter or painted pumpkins.
- No metal or plastic trash bags.
- Remove candles and non-pumpkin pieces.
- Also accepting gourds and melons.
The drop off opens Nov. 2 in the Dundee Branch’s south parking lot, and continues through Nov. 15.
This year, we will also have a time-lapse camera recording the lot so we can watch the pumpkin pile grow!
Drop your “seen better days” Jack-O-Lanterns at 5015 Underwood Ave., and be sure to check our social media channels for updates on our progress.
