FYI an interesting article on food service polystyrene. If any one knows of
a successful post consumer food service polystyrene recycling program, I
would enjoy hearing about it. The only market on the west coast that I am
aware of is the NPRC in Corona, CA and they are currently charging $300/ton
to accept this material. I have also heard a rumor that this facility is
for sale?
