Reduce Halloween Waste

Reduce Halloween Waste

Posted: Tue, 19 Oct 2021 10:31 by Cheryl Small

Communities across Leicester and Leicestershire are being urged to get involved to help prevent food and household waste this Halloween.

It's estimated up to 15 million pumpkins are binned in the UK every Halloween – but the flesh, seeds and even the stringy bits can be used to serve up some delicious treats instead. Once you have finished with your lantern, if it can't be eaten, it can go in a compost bin. More »

However, it's not just food waste that increases at this time of year, two out of every five Halloween costumes get thrown away after just one wear. This means an estimated 7 million Halloween items of clothing are sent to landfill every year in the UK.

Sign-up for a Halloween themed cooking class, craft recycling activity, or pumpkin composting session near you. Listings are available at: https://www.lesswaste.org.uk/community-engagement/events/

For information and advice on having a low waste Halloween celebration, please visit: https://www.lesswaste.org.uk/2021/10/14/halloween-waste/ » Less

Please note that work to construct a path has commenced at the Cemetery Field (between London Road and the Parish Cemetery and Peace Garden). In the interests of safety the area is best avoided via Sence Crescent or London Road.

The cemetery and peace garden can be accessed safely through the churchyard entrances.

We are expecting the work to take approximately one week.
