PLANT CITY (FOX 13) - If you have any extra Styrofoam leftover from holiday shipping, you don't have to throw it away. Dart Recycling in Plant City can recycle it for you.
Paper, plastic and even cardboard are common recyclables. Foam packaging usually is not.
“It's more the perception that foam can't be recycled,” said Bob West, Office Manager of Dark Recycling in Plant City.
Most of the time it’s thrown away.
“I know in our area a lot of this goes to the waste to energy facility, which is doing something good. It produces electricity,” West said.
