Pumpkins, straw bales and cornstalks are not accepted as yard waste through ACUA. Consider these useful alternatives instead of tossing them into the trash can.
Pumpkins, straw bales and cornstalks can all be used in a home composting pile. Be sure to remove seeds from pumpkins first (unless you'd like to grow some next year)! Read our tips for home composting here.
Break up straw bales and add piles around outdoor plants for an extra layer of protection for the winter.
Feed the Birds
Use a carved pumpkin as a bird feeder or use pumpkin seeds as food for wildlife in your backyard. (Click on image for project directions.)

Have Some Fun
