Foam recycling drop-off now in North Carolina
Dart Container of North Carolina unveiled
its latest post-consumer foam collection site in Randleman. The
free drop-off is a new way for North Carolina residents, businesses
and organizations to recycle foam.
Dart’s Randleman foam collection site is
one of the state’s first public sites to accept foam food service
containers, including foam cups, plates, take-out containers
and egg cartons, as well as shaped or molded foam often used
to package electronics.
Once foam is dropped off at Dart, it is compacted
and shipped to be used as feedstock to make new materials. To
be accepted for recycling, the foam must bear the “6” symbol
with chasing arrows.
