Compost your pumpkins.

If you aren’t planning to make something edible from your Halloween pumpkins don’t just toss them in with your garbage, compost them! Take a minute to think how much you pay for your garbage disposal. Most of us have either a limit to how many bags we can put to the curb for pickup or pay by the pound to dispose of garbage. Pumpkins can be huge and heavy and take up a lot of space and weight in our garbage.

So, to save money and to have great compost for your plants and vegetables, toss them into a compost pile. You may even be lucky to grow your own pumpkins for next year!
