Not sure what to do with your pumpkin once you’ve had your Halloween fun? Once you’ve removed the candles, you can either: - cut up your pumpkins and put them in your green food waste bin - simply put them whole on top of the bin on your normal collection day - pop in a plastic bag (NOT a black bag) and leave next to your food waste bin Alternatively, this year, instead of throwing away the pumpkin insides why not make something tasty such as roast pumpkin or a pumpkin tart? Recycling charity WRAP has lots of inspiring recipes for pumpkin reuse on its Love Food Hate Waste website at https://www.lovefoodhatewaste.com/
