Styrofoam recycling event planned

By Paul Ploumis

Waste Management wishes to make St. Joseph County residents aware that the third of its four Styrofoam collections is on tap next week.

The collection will be from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 14 at Westside Landfill Recycling Center, 60050 Roberts Road, Three Rivers.

Event organizers ask that all items be clean. Accepted items include dinnerware, take-out containers, meat and fish trays, egg cartons, packing material and foam peanuts if they are isolated and bagged separately. Materials not accepted include insulation board and fire-retardant foam.

There is no charge to drop off items, as the collection is being co-sponsored by DART Container.
