What can I do with lots of plastic garden pots, I have so many and need to get rid of loads - will anywhere take them for reuse? ... See MoreSee Less

I understand more and more garden centres are accepting them for recycling now. Perhaps others can say for certain which ones. I think Dobbies on Oakley Road for example.

Allotments always need them

Schools and allotment groups may also take them. Offer them up on freebie sites!

I think Coolings will take them back.

Coolng’s, Rushmore Hill had a bin in the car park

I am sure if you offer them free, people will take them.

I put mine out on plastic recycling day and they took them.

Offer them on your local Freecycle group and they will be snapped up. Alternatively, my neighbour put a load on her front wall recently and they were taken by a passer by who was delighted.

I leave mine in stacks at the end of drive, invariably someone has a use for them

Put them on the bromley plant swop group. Some one was recently looking for the square pots but lots of people can make use of them

Coolings take them and reuse them.

Bring some to Shortlands station please

Another place that I have seen people advertise on is Marketplace. Lots of free things listed there.

I always put Mine in the plastic recycling abs they go.

Freegle or Trash Nothing

Take them to Coolings on Rushmore Hill.

Dobbies at Keston now recycle them............. as well as compost plastic bags I was so happy to see.

I'm growing plants for various charity plant sales and can especially use the smaller pots you buy annuals and/or vegetable plants in (9cm high and 9cm diameter). I would love to have any of these please. I also know other people who grow plants for charity plant sales and can pass any spare pots to them...

Pop them on olio

Crikey. That's a big one. 👀

Awesome!! 💚 are you going to slice it up to use as a soap dish or sponge? Where did you get it? X

I am using this.... cut into smaller pieces 😅 for washing up and one thing I have notice is that it doesn’t smell 😃... so it is naturally antibacterial! How great is that!!!

Where did you get it💗

What is it?

I was supposed to be growing my own this year. Very cool purchase.

Would it be good for bathing too? 🧐

Yes, absolutely. The product above is made of same thing.
