Subject: Re: Recycling polystyrene in MD (Geralyn)

Nov 12, 1997

Dear Geralyn,

The Polystyrene Packaging Council always struck me as a fly-by-night organization; I, of course, hope that I am mistaken. By as of 6 years ago, it's contact information was:

1025 Connecticut Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20036; Tel: 202-822-6424. At that time they put out a list of Post-Consumer Polystyrene Recyclers Collection Points including 2 in MD Phoenix Recycling in Finksburg, and Georgetown Paper Stock Co in Bladensburg.

A 1997 directory, of the American Plastics Council, offers only 1 contact, who allegedly recycles polystyrene:

Prism Environmental Group, Inc.
319 Broxton Rd.,
Baltimore, MD 21212
tel: 410-433-5804

A 3rd place to try is the Membership Directory of the :
Assn. of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers, 1801 K St, NW, Suite 701L, Washington, DC 20006, tel: 202-974-5419.
