Think Green & Recycle

BG-Ferts-2In an effort to continue to be good stewards of the environment, we would like to share some information on how to recycle your Black Gold® packaging.

All of our Black Gold® potting soil and amendment plastic packaging is recyclable. The bags are manufactured using a Low-Density Polyethylene (#4) and can be recycled if the plastic is clean. You can find a local recycler in the United States on the USA LDPE Recycling Directory , or in Canada at the North American Plastic Recycling Network.

Black Gold® Fertilizer boxes are made of cardboard and can be recycled locally where you would recycle other cardboard. Since the contents of these fertilizers are natural and organic, the boxes recycle easily. Simply remove all of the contents of the box thoroughly by opening up one end of the box and shaking it vigorously with the open end pointed towards the open garden soil, then recycle with all of your other cardboard.
