Recycle that pumpkin!

Once Hallowe’en celebrations are over, a reminder from West Oxfordshire District Council that pumpkins can be recycled as part of your weekly food waste collection service. Pumpkins can either be left at the side of food waste bins, or cut into pieces and placed inside the bin.

They are then taken, along with other food waste, to the local processing plant near Cassington to be recycled into electricity and fertiliser.

Alternatively if pumpkins are still edible, they can be used for cooking – see the Love Food, Hate waste website(opens in a new window)for recipe ideas.

For more information about waste and recycling in West Oxfordshire, or to order a free food waste bin and kitchen caddy, email enquiries@westoxon.gov.uk or call 01993 861000.
