Since just five FUMC households filled the large bag pictured with ESP foam during our April recycling event, the Outreach team will offer collection of EPS (expanded polystyrene foam or, styrofoam) on the second Sunday of each month. Styrofoam collected will be delivered to Mayor’s Riverfront Park where it is picked up by recycling award winning company, Dart Manufacturers, out of Mason, Michigan. Dart grinds the EPS and distributes it to manufacturers of picture frames, interior molding, pens, rulers and other items.
We invite you to bring your foam items to church on Sunday, June 12 when a member of the Outreach team will be available at the collection box. Please note that only foam labeled 6, rinsed and wiped clean food containers, and items that break when bent are accepted. Thank you for joining us in another effort to make every day Earth Day!
