Where do you think you're ghouling with that pumpkin lantern?
Posted on November 3, 2005
There is no need to be a witch or wizard to turn your pumpkins green now Hallowe'en is over.
The scary lanterns can be recycled in a home compost bin of wormery once the festivities are over.
This top tip is just one among many released by Beds County Council, which is reminding residents how much waste can be produced over party periods.
Tips to cut down on rubbish include:
- Making a costume out of unwanted textiles, eg an old sheet for a ghost outfit.
- Reusing glass jars as candle holders.
- Saving novelty Hallowe'en gifts to reuse next year.
- Taking empty wine and beer bottles to your local recycling centre or leaving them for kerbside collection.
- Using a peat-free compost to grow next year's pumpkins or make your own using the seeds from this year's leftover lanterns.
To buy a home compost bin or a wormery, call South Beds District Council on 08451 306090.
