    Default Styrofoam Recycle

    Where do you recycle styrofoam in this city? According to the city of Edmonton's website, it goes in the garbage for landfill . I have a couple of bags worth of packing styrofoam to get rid of.

    Edmonton does not have strofoam recycle yet.

    You can always melt it down and make some napalm

    I went to the Eco center with a bunch of styrofoam, and they told me it was part of my personal garbage.

    Strange thing is, Sherwood Park and Edmonton both use the same facilities for recycle/waste disposal/etc, yet Sherwood Park tells you to put styrofoam with your recycle, while Edmonton tells you it has to go in the garbage

    When I lived in Westlock, you had to seperate your recyclables, but they took styrofoam too.

    Edmonton's currently stock-piling (big hole in the ground) styrofoam for future gasification, but I don't know why they officially don't consider styrofoam in their recycling program.

    Edmonton doesn't currently have a market for recycled Styrofoam. The reason why Sherwood Park does it is because their city council doesn't understand the economics of recycling. They'd rather contaminate their valuable recyclables for the sake of public image than effectively recycle their products.
