Plastic Foam Food Ware Bans
Polystyrene, better known by the brand name Styrofoam, is not readily recyclable, especially when it has food on it. It just ends up as litter or goes in the landfill. Choose to use compostable food containers (many can be recycled in your green waste cart) or, better yet use reusable packaging.
