Public School system partners with Dart Container Corporation in a commitment to Sustain an eco‐friendly dining service and divert foam from landfill
Arlington Heights, IL. (November 15, 2010) – A stack of lunch trays reaching nine feet high recently proved an important point for children at Arlington Heights School District 25 – collecting the foam ( ) trays for recycling can help save landfill space and be transformed into useful products.
In partnership with Dart Container Corp, the school district is diverting their school lunch trays from the landfill by delivering them to Dart in N. Aurora so they can be processed for recycling. Recycled foam can be reprocessed into premium picture frames, interior molding, and many other products. The children in Arlington Heights are learning to change their habits for a good cause. Before recycling their trays, the kids would throw out their leftovers with the lunch trays. Now, the children are learning to “whack and stack” as part of the effort that began in early September, according to Coletta Hines‐ Newell, Director of Food Services.
“We have a middle school broadcasting class making a video to help teach the other students in the district how to clean their trays so we can get up to 100% acceptable,’’ Hines‐Newell said.
Often improperly called “Styrofoam,” a registered trademark of the Dow Chemical Company, foam products are recyclable. In addition, foam products generate less waste in their production than paper alternatives, are stable and safe in landfills, and burn cleanly in modern municipal energy‐from‐waste facilities. Dart is driving recycling efforts from its manufacturing facilities to workplaces, warehouse recycling centers and consumers’ homes in curbside recycling efforts across the country. Dart has been making foam cups since 1960.
