If you’re anything like us, you might have a slightly soggy jack-o'-lantern sitting on your porch that you carved at the beginning of October.
Above, we talked about how you can help out a local farmer, but what do you do if your pumpkin is already carved?
What do with carved pumpkins
Richland and Lexington Counties recommend placing your pumpkins into a backyard composter as the best option on its recycling page.
Each county recommends that 1/3 of your compost be “green” materials (fruits, vegetables) and 2/3 “brown” materials (leaves, branches) — and we know you have some of those materials lying around. Pro tip: Remember to turn the compost pile regularly.
