If I bring my used Monrovia plant container back to my local Garden Center, can you use them?

Although many garden centers collect used containers, we could not reuse these for both logistic and sanitary reasons. Due to pest and disease issues such as the Mediterranean Fruit Fly, the Glassy-Wing Sharpshooter, Fire Ants and Sudden Oak Death, it is not viable to bring the containers back on to the nursery grounds; the resources and chemicals needed to disinfect the pots would offset the potential benefits.
