Hi Brian,

I don't know how sucessful this comany is...I was at a trade show in
Spokane, WA last Nov. and ran into a booth for Northwest Specialty
Recycling, LLC., a polystyrene recycling center in Moses Lake, WA. I
recall that they were doing post-consumer. The phone no. on their
literature is 509-762-2409.
