Pumpkins in the compost



Looking to reduce waste this Halloween?  Check out these tips from CalRecycle for an Eek-o Friendly Halloween.



And, after Halloween, don’t forget to compost your old jack-o-lanterns…toss those pumpkins in the brown compost cart!  And, don’t forget to compost all your leaves, food scraps and soiled paper too!
