ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL PLASTIC FLOWER POT COLLECTION!

We were delighted the rain held off while we set up and held our event this past Saturday in conjunction with the Black Mountain Garden Show & Sale. This was our 10th anniversary year!

The collection was staged at the back of the Black Mountain Library parking lot. Our DRIVE-THRU arrangement made it easy and convenient for folks to drop off their plastic pots and trays and then be on their way.

Besides being an opportunity to recycle, attendees could also pick out pots to take back home with them; all items were available free, "as is" for reuse.
