RE: recycling flower pots



In 2003, I attended the annual conference of the Illinois Recycling
Association (IRA). That particular year IRA and the Missouri Recycling
Association held a join conference in St. Louis. One of the speakers was
Dr. Steven(I think) Kline. His topic was the Missouri Botanical
Garden's annual flower pot recycling event. The information below is
taken off the Garden's web site. Hope this helps. The link has lots of
information about this project.

May 20-21, 27-28; June 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, 24-25, 2006
Plastic garden pot recycling. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monsanto Center of the
Missouri Botanical Garden, west parking lot, 4500 Shaw Blvd. at
Vandeventer. Drop off clean plastic garden pots and trays and receive a
complimentary admission pass for two to the Garden. For information,
call (314) 577-9440 during business hours or log on to

Subject: recycling flower pots


I'm also interested in recycling plastic pots and flat holders (or even
better, finding those who want the products themselves) in NYC. I run a
community garden and we go through lots every year.
