Recycling facility adds Styrofoam to the list of items it accepts

The Neal Road Recycling & Waste Facility is holding community recycling events and adding to the list of items it accepts while its plans to expand the recycling facility undergo environmental review, according to the spring 2010 Butte County Recycling E-Newsletter.

In early February, the facility held a plastic-recycling event for the agricultural community, in which more than 6.5 tons of plastic chemical containers were recycled properly. Due to the event’s success, the facility plans to hold additional recycling events for the community.

The facility has also added Styrofoam to the list of items it accepts for recycling, which already includes tires, electronics, appliances, scrap metal, brush, wood, cardboard, household batteries and inert materials such as concrete.
