Pot Return Program

Since the introduction of the Pot Return Program in 2011 we have successfully:

  • Collected and recycled over 800,000 pots from customers
  • Approximately 40% of pots used in the production process are now recycled
  • Responsibly recycled pots that were not reusable
  • Successfully saved approximately 275 tonnes in landfill and Co2 emissions

We are very proud of this achievement and look forward to ensuring we do our bit to reduce our industry’s carbon footprint and increase awareness on recycling and environmental sustainability.

The Pot Return Program is a great advantage to customers who don’t have to fill up skip bins with empty pots that end up as landfill. Through Pot Returns, you help reduce landfill and save on disposal fees. We make it so easy – drop off at any time, or phone our Sales team to arrange a pickup.

Alpine Nurseries reuses black pots of all sizes, however please exclude coloured, dirty or broken pots.

Be sustainable and get into the Alpine Nurseries Pot Return Program!
