Volunteers Needed for Styrofoam Recycling
Volunteers are needed to help receive, sort, and pack styrofoam at the Medfield Transfer Station on Saturday, May 18. Since only clean, white Expanded Polystyrene (#6) packing blocks and coolers can be accepted for recycling, all foam collected must be inspected before it is packed. Residents should remove cardboard, glues, tapes, labels, and stickers before bringing foam for recycling. No take-out food containers are accepted, as guidelines for recycling are strict in order to clean up the process and final product of styrofoam recycling.
Please sign up to help at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0448aaa623a4f49-styrofoam6 or call Barb Meyer for more information 508-359-9613.
Note: popped bubble wrap can be recycled in the bins for plastic bags at the Transfer Station (near the single-stream recycling) and at large-chain grocery stores. Clean packing peanuts will not be accepted but can be reused at Express Business Center 258A Main St., Medfield, 508-359-7444 or Postal Center 14 Milliston Rd B, Millis, 508-376-1200.
