Landscape Plastics Recycling

Johnson's Nursery Recycling

Drop off your plastics at your convenience,
anytime during business hours.

Plastics from the nursery industry are coded 2, 5 or 6.

Did you know? If you toss the plastic pots/containers and trays/flats that your plants arrive in into the garbage, they sit at the landfill and do not get recycled! Recycle. Act locally, think globally.

Johnson's Nursery, Inc. encourages landscape contractors and garden and landscape enthusiasts to save plastic plant containers, growing pots and plant trays. This program was created in part by Johnson's Nursery, Inc. and Waukesha County Recycling. Honor our earth by bringing your used containers to us in Menomonee Falls.


Q: If a homeowner puts their used landscape plastics in their own recycling bin, what happens with it? Does Waste Management, or whomever, do as they should with it, or does it end up in a landfill? Assuming it is “clean?”
A: "Most recyclables in Waukesha County come to our facility (not Menomonee Falls though) and we do not want them in our residential recycling system because they are contaminated. So that’s why this is a great solution to these landscape plastics." --Waukesha County Recycles

Before You Arrive:

  • Separate according to plastic type (#2, #5, #6) reglardless of size, style or color.
  • Remove all loose dirt and contaminants
  • Remove all metal wire from hanging planters
  • Nest all pots, cell packs, and trays of the same size and type tightly together (also sorted by plastics type)

When you take your items to Johnson's Nursery there will be a separate recycling bin for #2, #5, and #6 items.

If you are familiar with our property, we invite you to help yourself to our recycling drop-off bins.
If you need assistance, visit the retail office building and a horticulturist will escort you.
