Styrofoam Drive

The Green Teams at Rieke, Hayhurst and Maplewood together with Recology have organized a Styrofoam collection drive.

Where: Mary Rieke Elementary

When: February 5th from 9am-12pm

February 6th from 10am-2pm.

Please do your part to help keep Styrofoam out of landfills. We welcome you to leave it with us! Recology, with a company rally cry of "Waste Zero", will see that all Styrofoam collected from this event will be processed at Recology Oregon Material Recovery. 100% of the material collected will be diverted from the landfill. A $5-$15 donation would be appreciated for larger car or truck loads. These monies will go to green intitatives at the three schools. We will also include an educational display of how to recycle most of our household plastics.

In addition to Styrofoam, please collect your non-curbside plastics, both soft and hard. We will sort and delivery them to Farwest Fibers. For questions or details please contact Cindy Eldkrona (
