Plastic Pots to be Put to New Uses Thanks to Recycling Event


by Marissa Silver

Anchorage, AK - Old plastic pots will soon be turned into something new thanks to the Plastic Garden Pot Recycling event.

The one day event, Saturday, collected plastic garden pots, cell packs and trays.

Alaskans for Litter Prevention who hosted the Collection Day says the plastic will be put to good use.

"The recycled ones will be shipped to Seattle for recycling to be made into new benches, new flower pots, other kinds of plastic materials," said Mary Fisher who is the Executive Director for Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling.

The event collected three tons of pots last year.
