GREEN SOLUTIONS

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 collect for recycle.  Please feel free to contact me for details to drop off anytime or I can pick up.

Are you looking for extra plants?   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!
