Jack-o’-lanterns can go in organics recycling
When you’re done with your carved pumpkins and other gourds, you can put them in your green organics recycling cart. They don’t need to be bagged.
If you haven’t signed up for organics recycling, you can dispose of pumpkins with your other yard waste.
Added synthetic materials such as paint, glitter or jewels make pumpkins non-compostable, and then they must be disposed of as garbage.
Remember: Wrappers from Halloween candy go in the garbage. They are not recyclable or compostable.
