What to do with pumpkin waste?
Avoid putting pumpkin pulp and seeds down the drain after you have finished your pumpkin carving masterpiece. Always dispose of leftovers into the food recycling waste. Incorrect disposal of waste can cause severe drainage issues as the pumpkin seeds will create a sticky slime to your drainpipes cause the pulp to harden and causing numerous issues in the future.
Before washing your hands ensure that there isn’t any pulp stuck to your hands that could potentially sneak into your drains without you even realising
What not to put down your drains during Halloween?
1 – Wicked Waste
With pumpkin carving and apple bobbing activities, there is a chance pumpkin seeds, pulps and even apple segments can go down your drain. Dispose of any food waste in the bin and not down the drains.
2 – Grease Makeup
Dressing up this Halloween and painting your face with grease like material are great fun but are not something you should ever put down your drain. Use a wipe to remove your make-up and dispose of this in the bin and not the toilet.
3 – Sweet Disposal
Trick or treating is such sweet fun but can lead to a lot of sweet wrappers, have you ever wondered where those sweet wrappers go? Some may end up going down your drains and this will cause blockages, so try and make sure that all wrappers are placed in the rubbish bin and disposed of correctly to avoid any Halloween drainage disasters.
