You can dispose of pumpkins at home. They can also be taken to your local recycling centre (RC).
Which home bin
Home composting bin if available, otherwise general waste.
Which RC container
Use the general household waste container.
Which RC accepts this waste
All our recycling centres accept pumpkins and other food waste.
Do not put food waste into your household garden brown/green waste bin or the recycling centre's green waste bin. The facilities where your green or garden waste is recycled are controlled by regulations which restrict the materials they can accept.
- cut the pumpkin into 2-3cm chunks, place in a bag and freeze it until you want it.
