The Town of Ipswich encourages you to compost your pumpkins. Bring UNPAINTED pumpkins to the YARD WASTE section of the Ipswich Transfer Station. Be sure to remove any decorations, candles or lights.
The Transfer Station is located at 180 Town Farm Road and is open Wednesdays and Saturdays, 8 AM to 3:30 PM. You will need a beach sticker or transfer station sticker for access. Transfer station stickers are available free of charge from the DPW (town hall, second floor) with proof of residency and your vehicle registration.
Participants in the curbside compost program can put their pumpkins in their compost cart. Not a member? Join the curbside program!
