Curbside composting tip: The green Portland Composts! roll cart wants your jack-o-lanterns!

Include pumpkins!After celebrating autumn holidays, remember to compost pumpkins and gourds. Remove candles from jack-o-lanterns and toss them in the green composting roll cart. This is also the time of year to include food scraps like apple and pear cores and leftover or half-eaten candy (without wrappers).

Are you busy in the yard prepping for the change in weather? Gardening and pruning items, along with tree fruit, go in the green Portland Composts! roll cart too.

Watch the weight! Don’t forget there are roll cart weight limits, especially with heavy pumpkins and wet leaves. The 60-gallon green composting roll carts have a 135-pound limit.

Visit Portland Composts! for a detailed list of what goes in the green composting roll cart.
