A line of cars waits to turn in their styrofoam blocks on Sunday

Safeway offered an event on Sunday in Lake Forest Park to take styrofoam blocks in for recycling. They allowed four hours for collection but didn't realize just how long people had been collecting the difficult to recycle styrofoam.

There were long lines of cars during most of the event. Safeway had brought in two large trucks but ended up filling four!

An excellent idea! We arrived with a car full of Styrofoam, but sadly were turned away as they stopped taking at 1pm even with a line of cars remaining. Any ideas how to recycle this?

A reader told me that you can recycle styrofoam blocks for free at the Shoreline Transfer Station.
