Avoid dumping your pumpkins into the garbage! The limit is one bag of compost per household while supplies last.
Homegrown Compost is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute for organic farming applications and is made by the Redwood Landfill. Remember to recycle pumpkins in your green cart in communities where food scraps are accepted.
