Grandiflora Recycling Broken Plastic Pots

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

We finally did it!

After years of collecting a mountain of broken plastic pots in hopes that someday a recycler would appear to haul them off (and pay us for them), our dreams recently came true. The hero who came to our rescue is Timothy from East Jordan Plastics. He showed us how to gather, sort, palletize and shrink-wrap our trays and pots, and he offered us a small bounty per pound to cover our labor costs. Tim arranged the 53′ trailer that came to pick up our 28 pallets stacked almost 8′ tall, and the loading operation proceeded like clockwork. Several weeks later we received a check for almost a thousand dollars.

Recycling is good for the environment, and sometimes pays small cash dividends as well.
