Plastic garden pots and trays to be recycled.


Gardener's Pot Swap Recycling Event

  • Friday, June 29, 2018, 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
  • Saturday, June 30, 2018, 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

During our recycling event, 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, and NO HANGING POTS. 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.
