Potential disposal ban for expanded polystyrenePotential disposal ban for expanded polystyrene<div class="ExternalClassCA398947F0CE437BB66CCA5BD08649E9"><p>Metro Vancouver is considering banning the disposal of expanded polystyrene, often called Styrofoam, in an effort to encourage more recycling of the material. </p><p>Expanded polystyrene can be reused in local Styrofoam manufacturing processes, or it can be densified and sold to manufacturers to create picture frames, crown moulding and fencing. Residents can drop off expanded polystyrene free of charge at certain recycling depots, and businesses can send it for recycling at local facilities for a fee. Drop-off locations and facilities are listed at <a href="" target="_blank">metrovancouverrecycles.org</a>.</p><p>Metro Vancouver’s disposal program is aimed at creating a financial mechanism to encourage people to recycle. Surcharges can be applied if <a href="/services/solid-waste/bylaws-regulations/banned-materials/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">banned materials</a> are found in the garbage at regional disposal facilities. At the moment, local recycling rates of Styrofoam are low, despite options to recycle the materials.</p><p>Metro Vancouver has been consulting with those who make, use, sell, transport and recycle expanded polystyrene to better understand how the material is handled today and how to increase recycling rates. </p><p>Feedback was received through online comments, one-on-one conversations, and a workshop held in June 2017, which involved local governments, recycling facilities and service providers, appliance manufacturers and distributors, retailers and other businesses and recycling and environmental consultants. </p><p>A disposal ban on expanded polystyrene could potentially be in place as early as January 2018.</p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue34--Polystyrene.jpg2017-07-31T07:00:00ZGP0|#2c0fce0a-9b46-4bae-b276-c523188c6aa3;L0|#02c0fce0a-9b46-4bae-b276-c523188c6aa3|Issue 34;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass8EF945388A48493095248A4AEC2FAC22"><p>​Metro Vancouver is considering banning the disposal of expanded polystyrene, often called Styrofoam, in an effort to encourage more recycling of the material.
