Dear Andrew Galambos,
The easiest ways to deal with styrofoam trays are either to find a local recycler of styrofoam and let them process the trays, or to ask your supplier to omit the trays when shipping the product.
I'm aware of but a few Long Island companies but the NY DEC should know of more. Some of the ones I know to process polystyrene are:
Gianco Ltd, 516-842-8800.
Tri State Resource Group, Deer Park, NY 884-7610
Best Plastic Co., 341 Troy Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11213
Debco Plastics, Inc, 14 Maple Place, Freeport, NY 11520
Also try calling US EPA Region 2 at 212-637-4099
