Smash It! Don't Trash It!
On Sunday, November 1st, from 1-4 p.m. at Rick Sorenson Park (2015 State Ave.), Anoka’s Waste Reduction & Recycling Board is hosting a Pumpkin Smash.
Bring your pumpkins/jack-o’-lanterns to be composted (instead of placing in the garbage). Please remove all candles, decorations, etc. Smash it into the dumpster which will be hauled off to a compost site.
Coinciding with the Pumpkin Smash, the Anoka Parks & Recreation Department is hosting a Book UpCycle. We have collected gently used fiction and non-fiction books for all ages to enjoy. These books will be quarantined for at least two weeks prior to the event. Come to the Upcycle event and take a few books for your reading enjoyment.
Please wear a face covering (or your Halloween mask/costume) and please practice social distancing at these events. Thank you.
