Sonora, CA — With all the unwrapping done, how about giving a gift to the environment by the way of recycling a major packaging product?
That product is styrofoam, that white insulation material to protect bulky or fragile items. Once again this year, the UCCE Master Gardeners of Tuolumne County will be collecting marked #6 Polystyrene or styrofoam to recycle. All you have to do is remove any tape, tags and labels from it. The group is also taking colored polystyrene food containers, but please make sure to remove the eatables and wash out the boxes.
The public is asked to gather up all their styrofoam products and drop them off in the big recycling dumpsters at the Waste Management, Inc. recycling yard located on Microtronics Way (see map below). The recycling bins will be opened for styrofoam drop offs on Saturday, January 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, January 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
