STYROFOAM RECYCLED IN HIGHLAND PARK
Collaboration Brings Recycling Collection to our Doorstep
Leaders Hope to Repeat The Opportunity After Holidays

On October 23, Moraine Township, the Park District of Highland Park and Abt Electronics accomplished a rare event: local bulky styrofoam recycling–thanks to the initiative of Lake County Board member Anne Flanigan Bassi and SWALCO's web listing. Read more here.
