What to do with pumpkin waste this Halloween

This is a reminder that if a pumpkin has been taken into a domestic dwelling, or into a canteen, it would legally be Cat 3 meat excluded catering waste if consigned to a composting or AD plant.

That plant would have to be approved under the Animal By-Products legislation by APHA to receive such material.

Pumpkins from households should not be collected in green waste only collections unless they are processed in an ABP approved facility.
