Recycling In Action
REDDING, Calif. - Residents and businesses in the City of Redding now have the opportunity to recycle foam polystyrene (Styrofoam) thanks to a $49,000 grant from the Foam Recycling Coalition. The City's Solid Waste Transfer Station has purchased and installed a foam densifier.
The City of San Diego is expanding its curbside recycling program within city limits, adding polystyrene food service containers to the lineup. “By expanding what we’re able to recycle, we’re moving in the right direction as we try to reduce, reuse and recycle as much of the trash we collect every day as we can,” said Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer said in a statement.
The additional materials – usually referred to as Styrofoam – includes cups and food containers. The change is effective July 1, 2017.
