LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Once those pumpkins are carved, decorated and the Halloween festivities have wrapped up, there’s still one last step to the “pumpkin process” — recycling your pumpkin.
Once you notice your jack-o-lantern’s skin start to sag, Las Vegas Livestock would like to take them off your hands.
Pumpkin recycling takes over the city for a week from Oct. 29 through Nov. 5.
Those interested in recycling can simply stop by any of the locations listed below and place it in a bin.
The tasty pumpkin bits will then be fed to pigs and chickens being raised near Apex, North of the Las Vegas Valley.
