Check your county's website or call Styrofoam recycling facilities for information and location. If one of the facilities in your county is available, you can take your Styrofoam there. However, some counties and regions do not have Styrofoam recycling programs, in which case you need to try other options. If you have a lot of Styrofoam accumulated every month, maybe you can start your own Styrofoam recycling business.
