The City of Hastings and Dakota County are holding a free Pumpkin Drop Off beginning Friday, Nov. 5 at 3:00 p.m. and continuing through Sunday, Nov. 7 at 8:00 p.m. The drop off will be held at the Dakota County Transportation Shop, 900 Country Road 47, Hastings. 

Residents are asked to please remove paint, candles, wax or other non-organic material from their pumpkins prior to bringing them to the drop off.  Composting pumpkins keeps waste out of landfills, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and creates a natural fertilizer for our soils.

If you have questions, contact Paige Marschall-Bigler at 651-480-6182 or pmarschall@hastingsmn.gov
