Nursery Pot Recycling Program at NHG

Jul 15, 2009

Recycleimage_lg FYI, for you gardeners in the DFW area, North Haven Gardens now offers a nursery pot recycling program. AWESOME. Details here: http://www.nhg.com/recyclenhg.htm UPDATE: Just got a response from the Dallas city recycling manager. They say that they now take nursery pots in the blue bins, with the numbers #3-#7. But they grade it as "mixed plastics' and they say they are recycled into things like plastic lumber. I'm not sure if once the plastic is mixed, it can be recycled again. NHG will take #2's, which the city does not, and you can be sure that we will actually be recycing them. With our process, the pots can be recycled over and over again into new nursery pots. 

This is a great service and we're super excited to offer it. We'll take pots/trays from any garden center as long as they bear the proper recycling codes, #2, #5 and #6. Check the details at the link above.

This rocks! Seattle finally added nursery pots to the recycling collection, but they have to be clean (ugh). So, none of mine have gone in yet! I need to make it a project and just do it one of these days. Thanks for posting this!
