Garden stores join recycling event

David Hunter Garden Centers and Port Kells Nurseries are offering local gardeners more options when it comes to responsibly disposing of garden pots and trays.

The Surrey businesses are two of 40 Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) members in six provinces to have pledged their support to the National Plastics Recycling Event.

Gardeners are encouraged to bring their clean, dry garden plastics to the stores’ depots from June 25 to July 4 and stack them in the designated recycling area.

To help make the National Plastics Recycling Event a success, residents are asked to dispose of non-recyclables and other trash through normal means, and refrain from leaving items outside the store after business hours.

For more information, visit David Hunter Garden Center at 15179 72 Ave. or Port Kells Nurseries at 18730 88 Ave., or go online to www.canadanursery.com and click on “National Plastics Recycling Event.”
