Styrofoam is non-biodegradable and appears to last forever. It’s resistant to the breaking down of materials by photons originating from light. This, combined with the fact that Styrofoam floats, means that large amounts of polystyrene have accumulated along coastlines and waterways around the world. It is considered a main component of marine debris.?
Styrofoam can be recycled, but the market for recycled Styrofoam is diminishing. Many recycling companies no longer accept polystyrene products. ? Milton Keynes is one of them.
As compostable products are more expensive, our entry price will uplift by 20p from 1st June 2019.
We hope you understand this is an environment-driven decision.
