Fourth Styrofoam Recycling Day Coming Up
Our fourth Styrofoam recycling collection will be on Sunday, April 26, from 9am until 5pm. It will be on the parking lot on the corner of Waco Drive & Valley Mills Drive, in front of Ocean Buffet in Waco. Look for the UHaul truck with recycle signs.
This collection, sponsored by Waco Friends of Peace/Climate, is the only available recycling for styrofoam in the Waco
area. Actual recycling of material is confirmed. Come early, as truck capacity may be reached.
Accepted Styrofoam includes food containers, cups & trays, and larger molded & block pieces. Styrofoam should be clean and placed in bags if possible. Large, irregular fragments can be submitted without a bag. No peanuts can be accepted.
This is a free, nonprofit service, although donations will be accepted in order to help defray truck rental expenses. Complimentary climate action info cards will be provided to participants.
NOTE: there is a misconception that recycling is adequate to combat the climate crisis. Although recycling does reduce GHG emissions, the volume is a small portion of total emissions and recycling can NOT alone halt the climate catastrophe. Our mission statement is climate action and education. Thus we perform these styrofoam collections as a public service and to fill a need in Waco.
