Autumn leaves are in full swing this year, with streets and green spaces dotted with shades of amber, red, and yellow.
But come fall, there’s no shortage of oranges. Mainly from the many pumpkins that adorn the houses throughout the community. Now that Halloween is over, you may have a question about what to do with your pumpkins.
For the second year in a row, we are excited to offer a Pumpkin Toss with our Compost Clubhouse partners.
The Pumpkin Toss offers all residents the opportunity to “throw” a pumpkin into a large cardboard box at 1525 Goodale Blvd. Located next to our food waste dump. The trash can is open 24/7 from October 29th to November 11th. We do not accept painted pumpkins.
Remember to take out all the candles and put them in a cardboard box before tossing the pumpkin.
Grandview Heights City Note:Departments that can cooperate with fire prevention education
It’s a great time to think about how to incorporate sustainable diets into your gatherings and preparations for the holiday season.
The city’s free food waste dumping sites mentioned above are available seven days a week for residents to dump food waste into one of several green bins at their convenience. Examples of acceptable items include fruits, vegetables, baked goods, coffee grounds, egg shells, meat and bones. A list of accepted items can be found on the City’s website (grandviewheights.gov) under Trash & Recycling. If you are using this site or planning to use it, please do not put plastic bags in the trash. The only bags accepted must be BPI certified compostable.
Composting is one of many ways to divert food from landfills. However, the Central Ohio Solid Waste Administration offers other tips and tricks at savemorethanfood.org, including how to put holiday leftovers to good use.
Looking for non-food recycling? Earlier this year, the city was awarded a grant from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to purchase additional recycling carts for residents. These are available through the city’s Recycling Ohio Grant awarded by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
To request a cart, visit the website and[探しているもの]under the tab[リサイクル カートのリクエスト]Choose. Requests are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to those who have not previously received a cart. If you have any questions, please call the Service Department at (614) 488-4728.
Greta Kearns is the mayor of Grandview Heights.
