Pumpkin Amnesty

Halloween is the spookiest time of the year, we don’t need to create a scary amount of waste too!

We waste over 18,000 tonnes of pumpkins during Halloween in the UK alone!

So, instead we’re calling on you to join the Pumpkin Amnesty. Whether you’re roasting, boiling or baking make sure to make the most of your ghostly gourds this season.

To make it easier, we’ve created our very own Pumpkin Amnesty Resource Pack with all of our tips and tricks to enjoy your pumpkins all season long.

Carved, scooped and cooked your pumpkin, what now?

Did you know can turn it into your very own compost? Just break the pumpkin down with a shovel, cover it in leaves and let nature take care of the rest!


Thinking about collecting pumpkins for a large scale Pumpkin Amnesty? We can help!

If you have the space/ability to compost more than one pumpkin, why not start a collection centre?

Send out flyers or social media messages advertising of a drop-off point and you can use local pumpkins from your community to create compost and reduce waste.

Sound interesting?

We’ve developed some flyers and messaging so you can start your very own pumpkin amnesty.
