It's going to be a busy planting weekend. But what are you going to do with all those leftover flats, cell packs and pots? Hicks Nurseries in Old Westbury will recycle them for you if you drop them off during store hours from now through July 15.
Just collect and sort plastic garden pots of all sizes, cell packs, trays and hanging baskets. Shake out all soil and rocks from the containers and remove metal hangers, rings or other foreign materials before dropping them in the recycling bin, which is located in the customer pick-up/loading area.
Only garden plastics will be accepted. No household plastics, food plastics, clay pots, soil, metal plant hangers or plastic bags.
