We’ve started planting some new flowers in our gardens, so I’ve noticed a buildup of empty plastic plant containers in the garage. Because these containers are typically make from non-recyclable plastics (#4, #5, or #6), most folks just toss them into the trash. But this year we can help you make a change!

Last June, I wrote about local nurseries who reclaim empty plant pots for reuse or recycling. Taking in your used pots not only keeps plastics out of the landfill, but helps support a local business that has decided to care – a win/win. Here is where you can take your used plant pots, trays, and flats (they don’t take the flimsy plastic annuals come in):

  • Brownswood Nursery Inc. (559-3425)
  • Cloverleaf Greenhouse Growers (559-1515)
  • Daniel Island Nursery (388-6636)
  • Dream Gardens (744-7040)
  • Lowcountry Nursery Company (849-6064)
  • Middle Earth Nursery (572-4361)
  • Summerville Nursery (873-3220)

We also have a map if you are having trouble finding these nurseries.

I also want to mention the 6 nurseries that flat-out said “No, we don’t accept drop-offs”. In alphabetical order, they are: Abide-a-While, Carolina Landscape Supply, Hidden Ponds Nursery and Garden Center, Lowcountry Mulch, Palm Trees & Garden Center, Three Oaks Landscape Contractors.

Happy gardening everyone!
