"Farewell to Foam" This article on plastic foam (from Recycling Today) should impress upon our St. James Residents all the right reasons to keep foam out of our landfills and back into the consumer system as a viable new product. Locally, you can drop off your foam waste to; UNCW Recycling Depot (https://uncw.edu/seahawk-life/services/sustainability/recycling/).  Wide bins at UNCW are for the larger foam sheets.
Publix Market on Oak Island, has a depository bin in front of the store entrance, designed to accept only small pieces.
If the above options do not work for you, then contact me directly and I will pack your foam waste into my SUV and drop it off at UNCW.
