Styrofoam No Longer Recycled

Meaford, Ontario – March 13, 2017 – Effective April 1, 2017, Miller Waste will no longer accept Styrofoam, including all #6 materials, as recycling and will now have to go into the garbage stream.  The reason for discontinuing this program is due to the lack of any market accepting this material for reuse. 

Please do not put Styrofoam, including #6 materials into your blue box or take it to the recycling depot effective April 1st, 2017.  Except for large packing Styrofoam, all other Styrofoam products must be placed in your tagged garbage bags.  The large packaging Styrofoam can still be put in a clear plastic bag and placed out with your garbage on your scheduled garbage day. No bag tag will be required for this clear bag, however the bag will part of the 3 bag limit for garbage.

Look for Meaford’s new Mobile Waste App for Android and Apple, as well as our updated Waste section of the Website to be available on April 1st, where you will be able to search products to find out where to place them, amongst other waste management information.
