Q. Where can I recycle plastic pots and trays?
A garden center may accept those pots and trays. Check with one that is convenient to you to see if it will take them. Another idea is to offer them on a recycling network such as Freecycle or Craig's List in the free offers section. I have had good results when I have posted items on these networks. Someone is always looking for just the something you have.
