I. PLANTS 4 POTS

Don’t let your plastic garden pots and/or trays go to waste. Over 350,000 pounds of horticultural plastic contributes to the waste stream each year. Since 1998, our region’s plastic pot recycling program has prevented over one million pounds of horticultural waste from reaching the landfill.  Remember to reduce and reuse before you recycle. For ideas, please visit https://joegardener.com/podcast/plastic-nursery-pot-recycling/

PLEASE…..contact me if you have any unwanted, used, plastic garden containers and/or trays and I will gladly accept for recycle.  If you are leaving plastic pots, try to remove all dirt and debris, as well as any plant tags, and place ALL containers in a bag.

Are you looking for extra plants?   In exchange for your plastic, I have plants to give away. (Please bring a bucket, bag or a box to transport). I have inherited most of my plants and I will need to make room for more exciting stuff to share!  Don’t have any plastic pots, don’t worry I will still share my plants. Click HERE for more details!

PLEASE DONATE  in exchange for your plants and help support Kirkwood Area Every Child Promise, a community partnership committed to ensuring that all children and families are prepared for success as they enter kindergarten.  For more information, please visit, https://kirkwoodareaeverychildpromise.org/what-we-do.
