Shouldn’t put pumpkin glop in the trashcan because it makes it stink and makes a mess. Should put the pumpkin glop in a plastic bag (bread, produce, etc.) and then in the trash. I never put food of any kind in my trashcans. It attracts bugs, pet cats and pet dogs. I’ve always kept my trashcans underneath sinks because I don’t like to see the trash. I’ve got a baby proof lock on the kitchen cabinet where the trash is kept because one of my dogs kept opening the door with his nose.
