Dart Container Corporation today announced the opening of a new foam drop-off center in Chicago. The center – which is publicly accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is completely free of charge.
On Saturday, April 16, employees, friends and family from Dart Container’s Corona facility joined thousands of volunteers in cleaning-up litter and debris from the Los Angeles River as part of the 27th Annual Great LA River Clean-Up, hosted by the Friends of the LA River (FoLAR).
There has been an ongoing, heated debate over whether Styrofoam can be fully recycled. More than 100 municipalities say it can’t be, while The Restaurant Action Alliance, Dart Container Corp., and many other municipalities say it can. At the least, there is very limited infrastructure to process this material. FRC is trying to change that.
In October and November 2014, Environmental Resources Planning, LLC conducted a comprehensive litter survey of the Anacostia Watershed, which encompassed certain portions of the District of Columbia (DC) as well as Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland. The purpose of this survey was to gauge the amount and composition of litter along roadways and in non-roadway sites in and/or adjacent to waterways identified by Anacostia Watershed Society as indicator streams.
Dart thanks the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce for recognizing our continued commitment and growth in mid-Michigan!
