Plastic Plant Pot Recycling2016-No collections

A note from the Sustainable Hanover Recycling Committee:

The special collection days sponsored by Longacre's Nursery and the Sustainable Hanover Committee have been suspended for 2016. Hanover residents may put clean plastic pots marked with humbers 1 through 7 in their curbside bins.

We regret this development and will pick up the program in the future if it becomes practical to do so.
