Plastic Plant Pot Recycling

If you missed the plastic plant pot collection last month, there is another one this Saturday, July 16. You may bring your pots (no charge) to Longacres Nursery, 220 Mechanic St in Lebanon. They need to be tapped free of dirt and free of staples. All shapes and sizes accepted.

Longacres is working with the Sustainable Hanover Recycling Sub-Committee to keep plastic out of the waste stream. The pots will ultimately be recycled into new pots.
