Did you know many residential recyling programs don't accept plastic garden pots, especially those marked with a recycling symbol and #6?

If youhave an abundance of plastic pots that you'd like to recycle, bring them to the Arboretum!

On Saturday, June 2, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, you can bring your empty pots for recycling by our partner Midwest Groundcovers. 

Empty pots will be accepted in Parking Lot 21, on the west side near the Thornhill Education Center, from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 2 only.


  • Please make sure pots are plastic types #2, #5, or #6 and are empty of soil.
  • Gate admission is waived for those coming only to drop off plastic pots.
