Alas, Poor Jack, I Knew Him Well

Dead pumpkins society.

A completely unrelated discussion this morning reminded me that a lot of people aren't twigged in as to the best and/or way to discard their dead Jack-O-Lanterns after Halloween. If you can't compost the things, then check your local burg's rules for recycling and yard waste pickup. The chances are about 5:1 that your town will take your burned-out pumpkins in either the blue box or the big brown bags.

Make sure you ask before you send your gourds to the landfill.
