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!
