recycling gardening supplies

This was passed on from one of my fellow Greenies, Mary. For you metro Detroiters who recycle! This is information from Goldner Walsh Nursery:

"Have you ever considered how many plastic pots and flats end up in landfills? We think far too many and we’re doing something about it! Goldner Walsh Garden & Home has opened Oakland County's first public collection center for used plastic garden pots and flats. Thanks to new technology, our collection center can accept any plastic container – no matter what type of plastic. This project, a part of our Green Initiative, is leading the way to encourage environmentally responsible management of garden plastics. We will recycle thousands of pounds of petroleum-based plastics that would otherwise end up in local landfills.
Here are few key points about the program:

  • Pots and flats need to be free of debris and neatly stacked
  • Pots/flats do not have to be washed.
  • We will reward participants by entering them into a monthly drawing for prizes

Goldner Walsh Garden & Home is located at: 559 Orchard Lake Road, Pontiac, (248-332-6430). Collection center weekend hours: Saturday 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 3pm. "

Being green just got a whole lot easier!

Wow, that sounds way too easy. But I like it! Too bad I don't live in Oakland County! ;-)
Word. I bet you WA-State-ers are positively rapping the environment with your plastic containers!
