Don’t Toss Your Pumpkins After Halloween–These Dallas Orgs Can Use Them

Keep your gourds out of the garbage by donating them to a local animal rescue (pigs will snack on them!) or to nonprofits that can use them for compost.

Compost Carpool

With a quick online sign-up, you can ditch your old gourds (and other compostable materials) at one of Compost Carpool’s area drop-off locations or have them picked up conveniently from your doorstep. Bonus: Compost Carpool donates a portion of its proceeds to organizations dedicated to improving the Texas environment. 469-403-5221.

My Pig Filled Life

This little piggie…is hungry! This rescue organization cares for more than 300 mini pigs and will happily accept your post-Halloween donations to keep their hogs happy, healthy, and well-fed. 830-265-8882.

Farmers Assisting Returning Military (FARM)

This non-profit helps military veterans reintegrate into civilian life through agricultural rehabilitation and training. By donating pumpkins for their composting needs, you’re not only giving back to the environment but to your country, too. They plan to host a fall pumpkin drive to make donating even easier. 469-569-9961.
