Here are a few important pumpkin pointers to keep in mind when it’s time to remove your pumpkin decor! Pumpkins cannot be included with Yard Waste or in leaf piles! This said, there are several sustainable ways to dispose of your pumpkins. If you participate in our Food Waste Recycling program, Earth Peak Organics will pick up pumpkins left on the curb on Thursday, November 2 and Thursday, November 30. Please remove all candles, wax, and other decorations before setting out your pumpkins. Residents who do not participate in the Food Waste Recycling Program can drop their pumpkins in the bins behind City Hall. Pumpkins can also be broken up and left for animals to enjoy.
