<![CDATA[

Dart Container, https://www.dartcontainer.com/home/ Mason, Michigan, has launched three foam recycling drop-off centers. The three locations are in Ada, Oklahoma; Urbana, Illinois; and Twin Falls, Idaho. The three new drop-offs are publicly accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week and free of charge.

Dart manufactures cups, plates, containers, lids and straws made from materials such as expanded polystyrene foam, solid polystyrene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), paper and sugar cane. The company has more than 40 locations in seven countries. 

According to Dart, the facilities provide an option for residents, businesses and organizations to recycle foam plastics, which are labeled with a #6 chasing arrows symbol.

“We are excited to continue opening and promoting free foam drop-off locations throughout the country,” says Michael Westerfield, director of recycling at Dart Container Corp. “Many people don’t realize that foam is recyclable. We encourage all residents to learn what can be recycled in their city.”

The drop-offs, accept a wide variety of recyclable foam including foam cups, foam egg cartons, foam meat trays, foam ice chests and other types of foam packaging.

The guidelines for participation in the programs are the following:

  • Make sure foam has the #6 chasing arrows symbol on it.
  • Deposit foam in a clear or translucent bag.
  • Rinse or wipe foodservice containers free from food.
  • Remove straws, lids, tape or any other non-foam material.
  • Do not include foam-packaging peanuts
