The idea is this: In most municipalities, you’re not supposed to put pumpkins in the yard waste, so it goes in the garbage which we (taxpayers) pay to dispose of by weight.
Instead of sending those heavy pumpkins to incinerators or landfills, place the flyer at your house Halloween eve. Next day, put a bucket, barrel or tub out front with the sign so people can bring their used pumpkins to you.
The new flyer is not specific to Arlington and is also, hopefully, a bit clearer and more attractive.
Why spend taxpayer money to haul away pumpkins when you can save taxpayer money while making compost?
