Thank you to the entire campus for our efforts to reduce the amount of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam going into landfills. Participation in the Styrecycle program has helped to divert a bulky, non-degradable Styrofoam material from the landfill.
Our former vendor for this service has closed, and campus does not have central funding to support a new pickup and delivery program. For now, we encourage you to take advantage of an alternative offered by Dart Container, 1505 E. Main St., Urbana. Dart accepts EPS, which you can drop off at a fenced-in bin in their parking lot 24 hours a day at no charge. Read more its Styrofoam recycling program in Dart’s news release >>>
Further options are being investigated to resume pickup on campus, and we will provide updates as they occur.
If you have any questions, please contact Marya Ryan >>>
