[greenyes] Styro


Congliaro doesn¹t take food-grade polystyrene, certainly not from meat.
They use molded packaging PSand break it up into chunks and sell it for
packaging. I am not sure that this even comes from curbside programs, it
would be pretty expensive to collect and transport. I can¹t imagine what you
could do with PS contaminated by meat. I would think bacteria would be a
problem.
