Pumpkins Accepted in Courtenay Yard Waste Bins

October 27, 2016

Wondering what to do with your pumpkin once Halloween is over if you don’t have your own backyard composter? City of Courtenay residents may put pumpkins in the Yard Waste bins for curbside collection. Please remove any candles or tea lights from the pumpkin.
