Free pumpkin composting in Chilliwack

Residents have two choices. Drop pumpkins into their green cart or drop them off at the green depot.

Wondering what to do with the Halloween pumpkins?

City of Chilliwack is trying to get the word out on free composting options for residents of Chilliwack.

Those residents with curbside collection service can deposit pumpkins into their green carts on their regular collection day.

There is also the option open to all Chilliwack residents to drop off them off for free at the Parr Road Green Depot, from Nov. 1-4, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Green Depot is located off Yale Road, on Parr Road, just north of the Vedder Overpass at Highway 1.

“Please do not place pumpkins in garbage or recycling,” according to the city notice.
