DVR is the partnership recycling department for the Cities of Apple Valley, Eagan and Burnsville that connects residents and businesses to recycling, composting and waste disposal information.
For the avid gardener, summer means the accumulation of those black plastic garden pots. Plastic pots take up space in landfills; they do not readily decompose and remain intact for many years.
Lowe's home improvement stores provide a drop-off garden pot recycling program for customers. No matter where you purchase the plant, you can return the materials to a Lowe's Garden Center to be recycled. Learn more on the Lowe's website.

Additionally, some garbage haulers now accept black plastic garden pots with your curbside recycling. If you have one of the following haulers, keep plastic from the landfills by recycling your plastic pots, trays and hanging baskets in your recycling cart. Just clean the pots of dirt before putting them with your recycling.
For more information about specific recycling guidelines, go to your garbage hauler page.
