Garden Pot & Canning Jar Swap

Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 12:00pm to 7:00pm

CCE-Tompkins Education Center 615 Willow Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

From 12:00-7:00pm Thursday June 20 through Tuesday June 25, 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.
