So you’ve got lots of pots to get rid of …

CFAES’s Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens are hosting their annual Plastic Pot Recycling Event from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. June 10. You can drop off horticultural plastics (pots, trays and cell packs) and non-food-grade styrofoam. It’s free and open to the public in front of Howlett Hall, 2001 Fyffe Court, on Ohio State’s campus in Columbus.

“We engage with partner Phoenix Recycling to keep these plastics out of the waste stream and landfills,” an article on CFAES’s faculty-staff website says, “and they render them into useful products.”
