Going Green: Densifying Styrofoam to Recycle It
Madison County has purchased a machine to densify styrofoam to facilitate profitable recycling of styrofoam by packaging it so 30 to 40,000 pounds of styrofoam can be shipped at one time. It's going for 18 to 32 cents a pound so a tractor-trailer load could be worth over $8,000. Manufacturers turn used styrofoam into picture frames, molding and other products.
