Plastic Pot Recycling Program
As part of our commitment to sustainable practices, Blake Nursery will recycle your plastic pots. We accept two types of pots for recycling:
High Density Polyethelene, or Blow-molded. These pots have thin walls and a soft, flexible lip. They often have vertical or horizontal ridges on the sides. We accept 1 gallon to 10 gallon sizes that are black in color. These sizes can be distinguished by writing on the bottom, example: "100 series"= 1 gallon; "200 series"= 2 gallon; "300 series"= 3 gallon. They should also have a #2 recycling logo on the bottom.
Polypropelyne, or Injection-molded. These pots are more heavy duty. They have smooth sides and a sturdier lip. We accept 1 gallon to 20 gallon sizes that are black in color. These pots should have a #2 recycling logo on the bottom.
Pots should be delivered to the nursery, unless a pick-up location has been pre-arranged, and meet the above requirements. Please give your pots a quick rinse to remove mud, rocks and soil before dropping them off. We will not accept broken or cracked pots.
