Save money by reusing your fruit containers
At Lakeview Farms we do more than
just provide lip service to the concept of being sensitive to environmental
Since1979 we have been providing a financial incentive to encourage our
berry customers to reuse the containers that we provide
for bringing fruit home.
For 2016, we have increased the $0.80 discount to $1.15 for each box a strawberry customer returns to
pick in (requirement: one of the standard 8 quart waxed cardboard containers that was
initially provided by Lakeview Farms or one of our pick-your-own competitors
Quite a few customers have managed to take good care of
their containers between berry seasons and used them for several years running !
Keep in mind that because of the wax coating, these strawberry u-pick boxes
cannot be used by recycling centers and must be sent to a landfill.
For raspberries we offer a $0.05 discount for every clear plastic half pint till
and $0.50 for each cardboard box
reused by the customer.
