Plastic & Styrofoam

PLASTIC CONTAINERS/BAGS

All numbered plastics are now accepted  for curbside recycling. Must be rinsed/clean. In order to save space, please step on containers before placing them in the recycle cart. Cellophane Wrapping (like that inside paperboard/cereal boxes, make sure it is clean) is also accepted. No plastic bags or plastic film are accepted. Take plastic bags to grocery/retail stores that recycle plastic bags. DO NOT INCLUDE ANTI-FREEZE OR MOTOR OIL CONTAINERS.

POLYSTYRENE FOAM 

The UPS store at 51194 Romeo Plank Road, Macomb Center Plaza, Macomb Township will take polystyrene packing peanuts.  Pink and white peanuts do not break down and need to be recycled (non-recycled materials are used). Green peanuts do break down (made of recycled materials).  For other UPS locations, please call first as all stores do not take the peanuts.
