Pumpkins have long been part of Halloween celebrations. This year, Waste Management of Orange County invites residents to give their jack-o-lantern back to Mother Nature by disposing of it in their green waste cart where it will be sent off for composting.
To properly dispose pumpkins, residents should remove any materials such as candles, glow sticks and non-vegetative decorations and place the pumpkin in the green waste cart. To learn more about Irvine’s environmental programs, visit cityofirvine.org/environmentalprograms.
