Hate to throw away all the Styrofoam you open over the holidays? According to reports from the Society of Environmental Journalists, Styrofoam can take up 30% of the space in some landfills!
Between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 6, anyone can bring Styrofoam to Activity Center Park, where volunteers will unload their vehicles. Those dropping off do not ever need to leave their vehicle. This event is open to the public, regardless of where you live.
Environmental Consultant, ECO Development, will transport the collection to its facility in Mason, where the material will be processed and eventually recycled into products like surfboards, picture frames and coat hangers.
- White clean foam
- Furniture and appliance packaging foam
- Block form foam
- The foam should be marked with recycling #6
Styrofoam with any of the following is not acceptable; please remove prior to drop off:
- Food or drink containers
- Egg cartons
- Styrofoam with stickers or tape attached
Other items that will be collected during the event:
- Holiday string lights
- Old sneakers
This event is in partnership with BSA troops 515 & 516, City of Centerville, ECO Development and Montgomery County Environmental Services.
