SOS–Save Our Styrofoam! Recycling Event at UUCSS

Polystyrene (plastic number 6) is not generally recyclable. That’s why Montgomery County has banned its use by restaurants. Bet you still get stuff sent in styrofoam. We found a place that will recycle it into insulation. So save it and bring it to church on Earth Day on Sunday, April 29th. Let’s turn that nasty stuff to good use! We will collect it during Coffee Hour.

· Place packaging foam and food service containers in separate bags.
