Re: [greenyes] Styro


The Dart Company, that processes the Publix chain's styrofoam recycling here in Florida, collects it whether clean or not. They sanitize it before shipping it for recycling into packaging peanuts.

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.
