Re: [greenyes] Any legitimate styrofoam recycling programs still out there?


The Publix grocery store chain here in Florida has a styrofoam bin in the front of their stores. The styrofoam containers go to a central collection agency that ships it to Minnesota where the styrofoam is melted down in a nontoxic fashion to form recycled peanuts for packaging.

Indeed there are. A firm recently opened a plant in Albuquerque, NM which
blends Styrofoam and concrete to create a life size Lego block for
construction. I do not know what limitations they have regarding food
contamination, but surely there is an issue.
The company is Rastra Inc.

Once upon a time, there were some styrofoam recycling programs. Are there
any more?
