January 11, 2010 - The Fresh Start Market had signs posted on their styrofoam collection bins that they can no longer take anything but the block styrofoam. This must have just happened, I was there before Christmas.Recall that there were already some restrictions:
Accepted: Only clean, dry block packaging foam, meat trays or egg cartons.So it appears that we're now down to "Clean, dry block packaging" period. Still, having a convenient cheap way to recycle those infernal things is a real good thing.
- Packing peanuts (Call 503-588-5169 for reuse options. Most shipping stores will accept them for free if clean.)
- Packing foam with tape on it
- Construction foam
- Foam that bends in half without snapping
Also, while you're at Fresh Start, don't forget to go inside and check out their offerings -- which include Salem's-own Willamette Valley Fruit Company pies and frozen berries at excellent prices! YUM!!
