Recycling | Evergreen Nursery


Evergreen Nursery Recycling Program

Evergreen Nursery has an active recycling program. By recycling black plastic containers, greenwaste and paper generated from our operation, Evergreen Nursery is reducing its carbon footprint. By giving credit to our customers for returning containers, Evergreen encourages consumer recycling. By accepting greenwaste from our customers, we are able to make our own soil products which reduces costs that get passed on as lower prices. As experts in zero runoff, Evergreen Nursery has received many compliments from agricultural agencies for our innovative desiltation basins and water saving techniques.
