Recycle Your Plant Pots!
Did you know that the black and green plastic pots seedlings come in are not recycleable in Rumpke pickup? (Non-Columbus locals may have a different recycling situation.) They aren't, but you need not dismay.
The Ohio State University Chadwick Aboretum and Learning Gardens are hosting a pot and tray recycling event on Saturday June 19. From 8 am - 2 pm gardeners can drop off their plastic goods at the Vivian Hall parking lot, 2120 Fyffe Rd. This will be a simple drive through event with volunteers directing traffic and unloading cars. Clean non-food grade syrofoam (such as packing peanuts and TV/computer forms) will also be accepted.
The group is looking for volunteers as well as recyclers. Contact Mary Maloney, Director, at 688-3479 if you can spare a few hours to help.
