Recycled materials

I have no issue participating in a recycling program by using recycled materials. I wonder about the safety though. Are you confident that the recycled materials you use are safe enough?

With the invention of plastic containers then the microwave..people have been warned against heating or cooking food in the plastic..but not many knew why. Because the plastic is made from by-products of oil ( which also becomes gas) the food absorbs the chemicals.ALL recycled material is a by-product of something,so the more knowledge we have of the recycled items the safer we will feel..However you know that won't happen because questioning is "too much trouble" and bottom line,, profit is the bottom line!! So no matter what we will never get a straight answer to that question..weedbychoice

It is possible, but it may not be common in your area. Styrofoam (aka polystyrene) usually isn't accepted by curbside recycling programs & even if it is, they may not take styrofoam contaminated by food. Best bet is to contact your local waste management utility. You can also search at earth911 ...
