WENDELL — The community can enjoy a free fall event again this year thanks to Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, and Shotwell Construction & Demolition (C&D) Landfill.

Event activities include a bounce house obstacle course, pumpkin and face painting, cornhole games, animal balloon tying, hayride tours and touch-a-truck display. 

The Charity Pumpkin Patch will support local nonprofits including The Bailey and Sarah Williamson Farm & Nature Preserve, Good Hope Baptist Church and East Wake Education Foundation.

The event is every Saturday in October from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Meridian Waste’s Shotwell C&D Landfill, 4724 Smithfield Road in Wendell.

Last year’s event was so well received by the local community and charities that the company is hosting it again this year. 

Pumpkins will be available in three sizes with suggested donations of $5 for medium, $10 for large and $15 for an extra-large pumpkin. 

Donations are suggested but are not required to visit the facility and enjoy the activities. 

Meridian Waste is donating 100% of monies raised from the pumpkin donations to local non-profits and will match all pumpkin donations to double the amount given to the local charities.
