As Halloween comes and goes it is estimated that 1 billion pounds of pumpkins are sent to the landfill, doomed to rot and create warming gases that will haunt our planet far beyond this spooky season.
We have a solution that is scary easy - keep your pumpkins out of the landfill by composting them! Pumpkins are nearly 90% water and contain many nutrients that can be returned back into the soil. EDCO customers can also place their pumpkin in their green waste bins.
Crazy about pumpkin carving? To prevent additional waste you can save your seeds to roast or cook up the guts and carvings.
We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
