The Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District (NEKWMD) is considering equipment that would allow for Styrofoam products to be recycled at the Church Street facility – responding to what Executive Director Paul Tomasi said is the number one question asked of staff, whether Styrofoam can be recycled locally. The waste district’s Board of Supervisors was given a presentation from Tomasi at its recent meeting, and will hear from representatives of the equipment manufacturer at a future meeting, it was decided. The company which makes the equipment used to recycle Styrofoam, greatly reducing its volume on-site in a machine that can be purchased by the NEKWMD, offers a risk-free, and cost-free one year trial, Tomasi told the board.
