iStock_000020932148_MediumIt’s time to clean-up your Halloween decorations!  While we’re here to pick up all of your leftover trash – here are a few tips to help make Halloween cleanup a little bit easier (and eco-friendly).

Halloween Clean-up Tips:

  • Get Rid of Extra Candy – Do you have a ton of leftover candy lying around the house?  Don’t let it go to waste!  There are several programs that take the candy and ship them to homeless shelters, food pantries, nursing homes and more.  Check out this program that ships candy to the U.S. Troops.
  • Upcycle Candy Wrappers – While candy wrappers are not recyclable, you can upcycle them into fun projects and crafts!  Turn candy wrappers into jewelry or collages for a fun DIY project.
  • Reuse Halloween Costumes – Put your Halloween costumes away in storage until next year!  You can try swapping them with friends and family, or consider donating the costume, rather than throwing it away.
  • Compost Your Jack-O-Lantern – Before you toss your pumpkin, try composting it in your backyard.  This is a great way to add nutrients to your garden!
