Gardener’s Pot Swap Recycling Event

Gardener’s Pot Swap Recycling Event
During our recycling event, from Friday 6/23 to Monday 6/26, you can leave your plastic nursery pots, trays and cell packs IN GOOD CONDITION in the designated area off the CCE-Tompkins main parking lot on Willow Avenue. You may take away as many pots as you can use, too! Plastic that is left after the event will be taken to a recycler for processing. This is a FREE opportunity for gardeners to recycle their plastic plant containers instead of throwing them away.

NOTE: ONLY POTS IN GOOD CONDITION WILL BE ACCEPTED! NO broken or torn plastic. All pots dropped at CCE-Tompkins must be clean and stacked by size. Be advised that you now can recycle plastic nursery pots and trays at the Tompkins County Solid Waste Depot.

CANNING JARS: Please bring only empty, unbroken canning jars (Mason, Ball, or Kerr will be imprinted on the jar). All size jars are welcome, but must be true canning jars (please no mayonnaise or sauce jars.) Canning jars should be brought in cardboard boxes, not bags.
Take as many jars home as you need.
