Cllr. Heather Timms, the Warwickshire County Council portfolio holder for Environment and Heritage and Culture has sent a call out in local press asking residents to recycle this Halloween. Cllr. Timms said, "Recycling is important whatever the season it is. This Halloween we are encouraging residents to recycle where possible and think creatively when it comes to Halloween extras, such as decorations and left-over pulp from your pumpkin."
Studies commissioned by Knorr and environmental charity Hubbub, found that: in the UK, 8 million pumpkins are binned after Halloween, the equivalent of enough pumpkin pie to feed the entire nation.
See the full press release for information and ideas of how to recycle your pumpkin this year.
