The best gifts come wrapped up in people, and that’s why we at Arwood Waste are thankful for you! This Thanksgiving day, may we all be reminded of what we’ve received, and give thanks for each blessing. We hope you enjoy a day filled with good food, relaxation, perhaps some football and the love of friends and family.

Wonder what to do with that jack-o’-lantern after Halloween?  This year, Arwood Waste  is giving residents a chance to give their pumpkins back to Mother Nature by offering a organic roll-off dumpster cart where they’ll be sent off for composting.

To properly dispose of pumpkins, residents should remove any materials such as candles, glow sticks and non-vegetative decorations and place the pumpkin in the green waste cart.

“Composting pumpkins after the holiday?

Here are some other tips to help reduce, reuse and recycle this Halloween:
• Hold a costume-exchange party: Halloween costumes are often worn only once. By holding a costume-exchange party with friends, last year’s outfit can get another wear and you can get something new – without any waste.
• Create your own spooky decorations: Save money by making your own decorations from repurposed materials. Creating your own hair-raising decorations will put less stress on your wallet, the planet and allow you to showcase your originality for trick-or-treaters to admire.
• Trick or treat with recyclable bags:  Canvas, cloth or other reusable bags are an earth-friendly and more affordable alternative to plastic jack-o’-lantern buckets. Or, decorate recyclable bags or old pillowcases with spooky scenes to create a custom carryall to take home the goodies.
• Leave only footprints after trick-or-treating:  Dispose of candy wrappers, a big source of litter on the streets during Halloween, and carry an extra bag for litter.

After Halloween let your pumpkin enrich your soil!  If you do not have a compost pile, just bury the pumpkin in empty garden space.  It will quickly decompose and add organic matter and nutrients to your soil!
