Over the years, the nursery industry has worked on many sustainable innovations including reducing and recycling plastic waste. From our experience working on our large landscaping projects, we saw the need to implement circular economy principles by reducing plastic waste and moving away from single-use plastic pots to developing our own multi-plant trays.
We design and manufacture our own unique moulded 200CC and 600CC trays that after use can be sterilised in our pot washer and re-used many times. Once their lifecycle is complete, they can then be recycled into another plastic product.
Before delivering your plants from our nursery, we put the trays through our popper machine, which lifts the plant out of the cell for easy handling. The trays can be clipped onto planting belts for fast planting, and as a bonus you no longer have to collect all the single-use plastics after a job! This speeds up planting efficiencies and helps with OH&S. To incentivise our clients to return trays to us, we offer a deposit refund on all returned trays. It's almost like we are paying you to recycle!
We believe that once you start using our moulded multi-use plant trays, you’ll enjoy all the benefits and efficiencies they bring. If you are a landscaper, you know the importance of efficient planting of large amounts of plants, while reducing the waste produced in your operations and time spent cleaning up at the end of the project. Feel free to get in touch with our nursery now for a sustainable solution and quality native and indigenous plants!
