Colchester, Nova Scotia first outside U.S. to receive grant from Foam Recycling Coalition

Residents and commercial outlets in Colchester County, Nova Scotia can soon add polystyrene foam foodservice packaging, egg cartons, meat trays and protective packaging to their recycling bins, thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Foam Recycling Coalition. Colchester County will use the grant money to upgrade their facility and purchase equipment that compacts polystyrene foam into bricks prior to transportation to end markets. The recovered foam will be processed in the Kemptown material recovery facility owned by the Municipality of the County of Colchester. Located in central Nova Scotia and near the Trans-Canada Highway, this facility also provides processing contracts with neighbouring municipalities and waste management authorities.
