June 26-29: Give Away and Get Garden Pots at the Cooperative Extension
I just found out about this opportunity to get and give away pots, seedlings trays, etc. from the Sustainable Tompkins email list:
Friday, June 26-Monday, June 29
Tompkins County Cooperative Extension,
615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca NY
Are you looking for an environmentally friendly solution for what to do with the plastic containers from plants you purchased this spring? Bring your plastic nursery pots, seedling flats, plastic trays and cell packs (but no PVC!) to Cooperative Extension at 615 Willow Avenue any time during the weekend and leave them in the designated area off the parking lot near the greenhouse. And, you are welcome to take away as many pots as you can use! On Tuesday morning June 30, all pots and flats that remain will be trucked to Ultimate Recycling Plastics in Port Gibson (near Palmyra, NY) where they will get a new life.
NOTE: Absolutely NO pots will be accepted after 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 30th.
Sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County in cooperation with Ultimate Recycled Plastics
