FYI: Can’t Curb It? Mail It

Posted by on November 2, 2009 | Comments Off on FYI: Can’t Curb It? Mail It

Is it or isn’t it? Polystyrene is a plastic and it can be recycled. Though Albuquerque’s curbside recycling program does not accept Styrofoam (polystyrene), there are mail-in locations all over the country that take care of the nasty, lightweight, air-puffed waste material. Including CO, CA and TX.

If you miss curbside recycling day (paper, cardboard, plastic, tin, aluminum) or if it isn’t available in your neighborhood here is a list of the Q’s recycle drop-off locations (curbside does not accept glass, but the drop-off locations do).
