NEKWMD is considering equipment that would allow for Styrofoam products to be recycled

The Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District (NEKWMD) is considering equipment that would allow for Styrofoam products to be recycled at the Church Street facility – responding to what Executive Director Paul Tomasi said is the number one question asked of staff, whether Styrofoam can be recycled locally. The waste district’s Board of Supervisors was given a presentation from Tomasi at its recent meeting, and will hear from representatives of the equipment manufacturer at a future meeting, it was decided. The company which makes the equipment used to recycle Styrofoam, greatly reducing its volume on-site in a machine that can be purchased by the NEKWMD, offers a risk-free, and cost-free one year trial, Tomasi told the board.
