Garden Pot & Canning Jar Swap

Monday, June 27, 2016 at 9:00am to 6:00pm

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca, New York 14850-3555

From 9:00am-6:00pm Friday June 24 through Monday June 27, 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.

We also will accept EMPTY UNBROKEN CANNING JARS for swapping.  All size canning jars welcome, but must be true canning jars (no mayonnaise or sauce jars.)  Take as many jars home as you need.
