Meridian Waste North Carolina hosted its first of five (5) Saturdays in a row introducing its one-of-a-kind charity pumpkin patch at its Shotwell Landfill facility in Wendell, NC. Besides raising monies and doing good for local charities, the event showcases that even the unexpected can be fun, educational, and very “cool” for kids of all ages including those simply young at heart.

The pumpkin patch will be open every Saturday during the month of October from 9 am - 1 pm. Pumpkins will be available in three size categories with suggested donations of $5 for a medium, $10 for a large, and $15 for an extra-large pumpkin. Meridian Waste is donating 100 percent of monies raised from the pumpkin donations to be shared with local non-profits such as The Bailey and Sarah Williamson Farm & Nature Preserve and the nearby Good Hope Baptist Church. Donations are suggested for picking a pumpkin from the Charity Pumpkin Patch but are not required to visit the facility and enjoy the activities.  In addition to monies generated at the event, Meridian Waste will match all pumpkin donations to double the amount given to charity.
