I recently heard from someone representing a local foam advocacy site here in Florida. The name of the site is GoFoam Florida. In case you are wondering what kind of foam I am referring to, it is the polystyrene foam found in cups (often referred to as Styrofoam cups, even though Styrofoam is a registered trademark of the Dow Chemical Company that is used for insulation, not food packaging products). Polystyrene foam is also used in egg cartons, serving trays, to-go containers, etc. GoFoam is an affiliate of Dart Container Corp., maker of polystyrene foam containers. Of course it is in the best interest of Dart to do what it can to keep folks using polystyrene foam. For those who do, and there are a lot of you, Dart has provided a map of public drop-off locations for polystyrene foam recycling. A quick check found just four locations here in Florida.
