On my school campus and in my neighborhood, all plastics (resin numbers 1-7) are accepted. This includes styrofoams, which are usually labeled 7.
You can check with your waste management company or city officials to determine what is accepted in your are.
Styrofoam is harmful to the environment because it takes an extremely long time to decompose and can be deadly to animals if ingested.
You can always keep a stash of old styrofoam around to use for packing purposes, but if you’re eager to get rid of it..
Visit Earth911.org and type in the ‘search’ box polystyrene (which is the actual name of the material used to make styrofoam) and then enter your location. The search results with direct you to local organizations that will take your styrofoam from you.
