Los Angeles, California — For the fifth consecutive year, Dart Container is bringing foam recycling education and volunteer efforts to the 24th Annual Great LA River Cleanup hosted by the Friends of the LA River (FOLAR). On Saturday, May 18, 2013, employees from Dart’s Corona manufacturing facility joined thousands of other volunteers as they picked up trash and debris from the LA River.
“The Great LA River Cleanup continues to make an impact on our community, and we’re grateful to have the long-term support of Dart,” said FOLAR. “We appreciate Dart’s dedication to preserving the LA River and educating the community about recycling foam rather than littering or adding to our landfills.”
Starting with 30 volunteers at FOLAR's first river cleanup in 1990, this event has grown to include over three thousand volunteers.
As a part of the Great River Cleanup activities, Dart employees participating in the Great LA River Cleanup demonstrated how foam products can be recycled in Los Angeles and how to dispose of them responsibly. Los Angeles currently has 92 communities participating in curbside foam recycling programs where residents are able to easily recycle their foam waste with the #6 “chasing arrows” symbol.
“We’re proud to partner with the Friends of the LA River for a fifth year. It’s a great collaborative effort to help the community clean up one of Los Angeles’s great outdoor spaces, and educate residents about the many curbside foam recycling programs available,” said Michael Westerfield, Corporate Director of Recycling Programs at Dart Container Corporation.
Foam with the number six on it can be recycled repeatedly and used to make other consumer goods, such as picture frames, crown molding, and agricultural containers.
