Consumers Encouraged to Recycle Plastic Garden Pots
Milton, Ontario, June 12, 2008 - Gardeners located in Milton and Halton Hills now have an opportunity to recycle their used flower pots. Landscape Ontario is proud to partner with a recycling company, Re-Source Ontario of Toronto in hosting a pilot project to divert thousands of pounds of plastic pots, trays, tags and greenhouse film from the local landfills. Many municipal recycling programs do not accept this material.For additional information, please contact:
During the week of June 16 to June 20, four large containers will be located at the Milton office of Landscape Ontario. Members of the public are encouraged to drop off their used horticultural plastic during business hours at 7856 Fifth Line, just south of Steeles.
The week-long demonstration will help the entire horticultural industry to evaluate the feasibility of long-term projects to recycle plastic gardening waste.
