Busy Day for Recycling!

Last Saturday, (August 20th) Anchorage’s dedicated gardeners brought in over 2 tons of plastic pots, trays and cell packs for recycling. 3,128 pounds of plastic pots were baled and shipped to Seattle to be recycled into new stuff and over 1,200 pounds taken away by gardeners and greenhouses for reuse! Very cool, thanks to a great partnership between ALPAR, Alaska Waste, RockTenn Recycling Center and the Alaska Botanical Garden. Thanks to Anchorage Media Group and all their great radio stations for helping us get the word out! Alaska’s gardeners recycle, too!
