Pumpkins Can Be Composted, Donated To Farms, Fed To Wildlife

Old Pumpkins

Chattanooga, Tennessee—

Halloween is over, so have you thought about what you would do with those rotting jack-o’-lanterns sitting on your front porch? According to the Associated Press, many consider composting pumpkins in the garden, donating them to community gardens, farms or even a zoo. Gardeners even add pumpkins to the compost pile after removing any remaining seeds. If unable to compost, many suggest to look up services in your area that can pick up compostable material.
