Here's a great way to get rid of your plastic junk like planter pots, hanging baskets, black plastic edging and empty fertilizer and mulch bags. Take them to Boerner Botanical Gardens, 9400 Boerner Drive, on September 24-26 and drop them off on the SE corner of the parking lot between 9am-3pm. It they have dirt on them, please clean that off and please sort the plastic pots according to the number #2, #5, or #6 on the bottom of the pot. It's that simple. Last year over 21.5 tons of the stuff was collected by Boerner and UW-Extension. Mother Earth says "thank you," along with all future generations of life.
