Compost Jack’s Guts

Want to hear something scary? More than 20 percent of Seattle’s garbage is compostable! Don’t be haunted by a wasteful Halloween – instead, you can cut down on waste by composting your pumpkin and its gourd “guts” in your food and yard waste cart!

Pumpkins, caramel apples, napkins, greasy pizza boxes and all other food scraps can be placed in your food and yard waste cart, where they will be collected weekly and made into compost for local parks and gardens.
