Kane County Recycling Events
Pumpkin & Squash Recycling Event 
Kane County, in conjunction with Pushing the Envelope Farm and Northern Illinois Food Bank, are offering a free pumpkin recycling event in Geneva on Saturday, November 2 nd to help you reduce your seasonal holiday waste! See the event flyer here!

Jack O’Lanterns, pumpkins and decorative squashes are highly compostable and it is a real shame to just send them to a landfill, when the nutrients they contain could instead be returned to soil that will grow more healthy food!

When: Saturday, November 2 nd from 9am-12pm
Where: Pushing the Envelope Farm at 1700 Averill Road in Geneva.
What: We will be accepting pumpkins and squashes for composting right on a farm! It is very important to keep it contaminant-free; just like food scrap composting.
This means NO: • candles • yarn hair • stickers • googly eyes • plastic ears • plastic of any kind.

Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2020
Urban Land Institute and PwC release annual real estate report
Real estate investors face a changing world, with the rising risk of recession in the short term and, over the long term, a slower rate of economic growth in general. Despite anxieties, however, U.S. real estate is still a favored place for investors from all over the world to invest their capital, according to  Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2020 , released by ULI and PwC during the Fall Meeting.
Over the next five to ten years, “Long-term economic growth is probably going to be slower—sustainable, but slower,” said Andrew Warren, director of real estate research for PwC and a coauthor of the report. “We look at the potential of 2 percent growth over the foreseeable future—five to 10 years.”

The report is available with a free subscription to PwC. Visit the report webpage for more details and to download the report. The content for this article was originally published in Urban Land Magazine .
