ZERO WASTE PUMPKIN DISPOSAL

Posted by: Mary Beth Mueller on October 28, 2022

PRC shares advice on how to celebrate a ZERO WASTE HALLOWEEN by properly disposing of pumpkins!

WHOLE UNDECORATED PUMPKINS — Roast and enjoy as a snack, make pumpkin puree or soup, and incorporate into muffins or other treats.

CARVED PUMPKINS — Smash them up and add to your compost bin or leave in the woods for wildlife to enjoy.  Be sure to dispose of seeds first if composting.

PUMPKIN GUTS — Keep out of compost (unless you want baby pumpkins to grow). Many recipes turn pumpkin guts into fall treats.

PAINTED/DECORATED PUMPKINS — Cut off painted/decorated parts and dispose in trach.  You can then dispose of the remainder of the pumpkin as described above.
