Don’t throw away your pumpkins, compost them!
From November 1-December 8, our Public Service team will have special containers available at Fancyburg Park for our annual pumpkin composting program. Simply toss your pumpkins into the containers and they will be transported to a compost facility.
Please make sure you have removed any non-organic decorations, candles or materials from the pumpkins before you bring them to the collection site.
And DO NOT place pumpkins in the lime-green food waste composting containers (located at Sunny 95 Park, the Municipal Services Center and Fancyburg Park) OR in your food waste container if you are participating in the curbside food waste collection program.
