Styrofoam Recycling Event Sat. October 24th

Filed under: Around Town,Home & Garden by Deb Cleveland at 7:30 pm on October 15, 2009

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Many don't realize that styrofoam never decomposes, (it never "breaks down" into organic material), like some other trash. Styrofoam remains in landfills forever. This effects us all personally as costs of products and services increase due to the increased cost of finding ways and places to dispose of garbage.

Framingham does not currently accept Styrofoam in its recycling program, but some companies are finding ways to give old Styrofoam new life in new uses.

Grace Congregational UCC church in conjunction with ReFoamit, LLC, is sponsoring a Styrofoam collection Day on Saturday, October 24 from 9Am to 4PM. Please collect and donate your clean (washed) styrofoam products including: takeout containers, packing pellets, coffee cups, disposable plates, inserts from large packages. (Please remove all tape from the Styrofoam)

There will be refreshments, prizes, gifts and environmental information at this free event. Parents and children are encouraged to participate in the "kids corner" activities and come away with their own original creations.

Grace Congregational UCC Church is at 76 Salem End Road between Rt. 9 (High St.) and Winter St. near Framingham State College.

For more information go to or call 508-872-3342.
