UPDATE: We have moved to an indoor booth at Renningers and can no longer take all nursery plastic for recycling. I am still always interested in plastic nursery pots 4-4.5 inches in diameter either round or square and 1 gallon plastic nursery pots as well. If you have questions call me at 360-3952.
According to Penn State University College of Agriculture Science, approximately 320 million pounds of nursery pots, trays and cell packs wind up in landfills or hazardous waste incinerators every year. Most recyclers, including Lake County, don’t take nursery plastic products.
Our Rabbit Hill Gardens booth at Renningers Market in Mount Dora will take these pots and trays, sterilize and reuse them which is even more energy efficient than standard recycling. We have set up a recycling bin where items can be dropped off. We are in row 2 number 1 every weekend. We can also take pots during the week if you make arrangements with us. Call Susan at 360-3952 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
