Properly dispose of your pumpkin after Halloween – not in the garbage!
Pumpkins are between 80% and 90% water, are easily compostable and contain many nutrients that are great for your lawn or garden. Before composting pumpkins remove any light sources or non-organic decorations first.
Compost your pumpkin:
- Put in a paper yard waste bag and place at the curb on your recycling day.
- In your backyard compost bin
- Directly on your lawn or in your garden
The City of St. John’s Pumpkin Walk is a Halloween-themed event for the entire family, and all pumpkins are composted afterwards.
Drop off your carved pumpkin:
8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 2
After the event all pumpkins will be composted along with other yard waste at the Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility.
