Styrofoam Collection, Recycling Will Be Available at Earth Festival

Styrofoam Collection, Recycling Will Be Available at Earth Festival

Just a reminder to all those interested in recycling Styrofoam at Earth Festival:

OCCA will again collect white, clean Styrofoam in plastic bags at Earth Festival 2012 (date to be announced), which will then be delivered to Shelter Enterprises in Cohoes, New York.

For 2012, to offset rental truck costs and fuel consumption, this delivery will be made possible by a generous donation from OCCA President Vicky Lentz. Lentz has offered the use of a horse trailer and pick-up truck powered by biodiesel processed on Fox Falls Farm, which is owned by she and husband, Ed.

Those setting aside Styrofoam in preparation for the Earth Festival 2012 collection – including white clam shells, white meat trays, and white Styrofoam packaging material – are asked to store them in a plastic bag so that items may be transferred easily and efficiently.

Earth Festival is a free environmentally-focused, interactive event featuring exhibits, activities, vendors and entertainment, all with a fun, earth-friendly twist. It is sponsored by Otsego County Conservation Association and Wildlife Learning Company, and held annually in mid-April at Milford Central School.

Please call Martha Clarvoe, OCCA special projects manager, at 607-547-4020 for more information.
