|Is your jack-o-lantern looking a bit…withered? No need to put it in the trash! Instead, put pumpkins, gourds, and other natural fall decorations, like straw and corn, with yard waste on your regular yard waste collection day once you’re done using them as seasonal decoration. Pumpkins must be free of candles and decoration other than coloring.
The natural material will be turned into compost and put back into our community. It will help make Louisville look good and prevent the material from taking up landfill space. This program applies to residents of the Urban Services District (old City of Louisville boundaries)Yard waste is collected on the same day as recycling. To find the waste collection dates for a particular address and learn about collection guidelines, use the Recycle Coach app or website.
Customers of other Jefferson County municipalities and of private haulers should check with them regarding pumpkin disposal.
