Pumpkins Accepted in Compostable Waste Container
Don’t have space in your backyard composter for your Jack-O-Lantern? You can still keep pumpkins out of the landfi ll by placing them in your compostable waste container along with your food and yard waste.

When setting your pumpkin in your compostable waste container, remember the following:
• remove all candles;
• remove any decorations, such as any plastics or metal;
• place in your re-usable compostable waste container,
not into a Kraft paper bag

Pumpkins can also be taken to the Net Zero Waste Abbotsford Composting Facility where they will be accepted
at no charge. The facility is located at 5050 Gladwin Road.
