Winter 2017-2018 Recycling
Styrofoam Collection will be December 26 – January 14
Volunteers are needed to transport Styrofoam to Alpha Ridge
Contact Liz Feighner at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Styrofoam and packing material is collected quarterly in
Jan, April, July and Oct at the Ministry Center
(house with carport at end of parking lot)
Emmanuel UMC (10755 Scaggsville Rd, Laurel, MD)
Please do not drop off Styrofoam at the church if not during the collection period as there is no place to store it. You can take Styrofoam to Alpha Ridge Convenient Center and packing material to The UPS Store when we are not collecting. During collection, please place items in designated bins under the carport of the ministry center.
- Hard Styrofoam with recycle code 6 – Please remove all labels and tape
- CLEAN Styrofoam food containers like egg cartons, cups, take-out containers, meat & veggie trays – please rinse thoroughly and dry. Please be considerate of the green team members and thoroughly clean the food containers – food staining is OK but please remove all food particles. Styrofoam must be kept separate from packing material.
- Packing material such as packing peanuts, bubble wrap, air pillows and soft foam. Must be kept separate from Styrofoam as this is taken to The UPS store for reuse.
Please follow the directions on the Styrofoam recycling bins. Thanks for recycling!
