WASHINGTON - Foam packaging recycling has moved into cyberspace with its own home page. ``We believe this will enable the public to be more knowledgeable about recycling their [expanded polystyrene] packaging,'' said Betsy de Campos, director of env-ironmental affairs for Association of Foam Packaging Recyclers of Washington, a nonprofit industry group. ``More importantly, it will enable the public to understand the importance of making sound packaging choices.''
Located on the World Wide Web, AFPR's home page address is http://www.presstar.com/afpr and lists more than 200 EPS recycling sites across the country. In addition, the site offers a detailed map identifying collection sites, results of industry-related EPS performance studies, technical articles and a quiz to test users' recycling knowledge.
