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.
