Halloween has come and gone and it might be time to get rid of your rotting pumpkins.

Instead of throwing them away the Town is asking residents to recycle by putting the pumpkins in the green organics cart.

An alternative option is also available at the Okotoks Bottle Depot if locals don't have access to a green bin.

Pumpkins can be dropped off at the yard waste area beside the depot, but all other refuse like branches, roots, stumps and food waste are not permitted to be dumped at this location.
