This week we are even closer to a local way to recycle foam products. Environmental Stewardship Greensboro, Greensboro Beautiful, Tiny House, Emerging Ecology, New Garden Friends Meeting and other local faith congregations are organizing a local drop-off site at the Tiny House Training Center on W. Gate City Blvd.

Last week Greensboro Beautiful tentatively approved $18,000 for the project, which also secured $22,000 from the Foodservice Packaging Institute toward the project’s $44,000 goal. The local drop-off site will be much more convenient than the Dart Container facility in Randleman, where our New Garden foam recycling team has taken foam collected at the Meeting House for several years.
