Event Series Event Series: OPERATION PUMPKIN DROP


November 4, 2022

BPCA’s Parks Operations team has established drop off locations throughout Battery Park City for anyone wishing to drop off their Halloween pumpkins for composting beginning Tuesday, November 1. Your pumpkins will be sustainably composted and used to create a quality soil fertilizer. After the composting process is complete, these nutrients will be returned back to Battery Park City gardens to help improve our soil fertility.

To participate, simply drop your pumpkin(s) in any of the gray bins at the locations listed below. BPCA will be collecting the pumpkins through November 4.

Drop Off Locations:
– Outside 75 Battery Place
– Esplanade Plaza
– Teardrop Park South
– Rockefeller Park – Lower Level of Chambers and River Terrace by Tribeca Pointe

To date in 2022, BPCA has composted more than 36,000 pounds of fruit, vegetables, plants, and coffee grounds dropped by neighborhood residents. Thank you for helping keep Battery Park City beautiful!

If you’d like to learn more about the composting process please reach out to info.bpc@bpca.ny.gov.
