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.
