Pig Farm Asks for Old Jack O'Lanterns | Environment
A local farm is asking people not to throw out their old jack o' lanterns but instead recycle them into pig feed.
R.C. Farms is taking in pumpkins to feed to its hogs and cattle. This is the 19th year the farm has taken in jack o’ lanterns. The pumpkins can be dropped at the farm at 555 E. El Campo Grande Avenue, near the corner of Ann Road and North 5th Street.
There will be other drop off points around the valley:
- 1383 American Pacific Drive, Henderson
- 0405 S. Eastern Avenue, Henderson
- 9892 W. Flamingo Road
- 7335 S. Rainbow Boulevard
- 6400 SE Centennial Center Dr.
People should look for the large light blue containers with the R.C. Farms logo. Last year, the farm collected 15 tons of pumpkins. Pumpkins will be collected through November 5.
