How to recycle pumpkins this Halloween

Published: Thursday, 29th October 2015

Oxford residents can recycle their pumpkins in several ways this Halloween.

Residents can simply put their unwanted pumpkin in their food caddy. If the pumpkin does not fit, put it on top of the food caddy on collection day.

But if the pumpkin is still edible it can be recycled into a tasty treat.

Recycling charity WRAP has lots of inspiring recipes for pumpkin reuse on its Love Food Hate Waste website.

It is estimated that more than one million pumpkins are bought in the UK in the run up to Halloween every year.

Residents who do not yet have food recycling caddies and would like to start using them, should contact us.
