Foam trays recycled! In North Carolina!

I recycled my polystyrene (aka Styrofoam) trays in North Carolina. I know it sounds insane, but it's not as crazy as it sounds! Here's why: We were going from Asheboro, N.C., to Greensboro, N.C., which took us right through Randleman, N.C., which is where one of the Dart Container polystyrene drop-off facilities is. So I packed as many trays (uniform shape) into my suitcase and backpack as I could. And recycled them in N.C.! Now if only I could recycle the 13 other bags of cups, plates, trays and clamshells (those take-out containers that open and shut like a clam shell) in our garage...

This place was not easy to find, so this sight was sweet.

My mom gets the honor of recycling the foam trays!

The bins were full, so it's not just me making the trek to recycle.

  2. Good article! Waste is misplaced resource. Polystyrene is worth recycling. INTCO recycling help drop-off centers to dispose of the waste EPS and make good use of them as delicate renewable PS frames. Here is a our website you can get more information from it:
