Re: [greenyes] Hg-lamp take back programs
Lisa, all,

For formed styrofoam there are two really good options:

1) Contact Diana at the Alliance of Foam Packaging Recyclers at (410)
451-8340.  It is her job to find a styrofoam recycler nearest you, and she
will.  She did for me!  This org also has a website fyi.

2) Contact your local Pak-Mail type retailer.  I know people say they only
take peanuts, but many also take formed styrofoam and cardboard boxes.  It's
definitely worth a try.  Our local one here in rural Nebraska just took
dozens of computer boxes, packaging and all, off our hands.

A home-grown reuse option is what my rural neighbors do:  They use it to
insulate their outbuildings.

Good luck and stay warm!

> Hi - a colleage is looking to dispose of about 200 pallets of styrofoam
(not the peanuts). He's located in southern Maine. and I remember there
being a discussion on this earlier this winter, but can't find the posts.
Any suggestions?
