GREENMAX has come up with the best solution to recycle Styrofoam coffee cups
As we know, countries like Germany, Austria and Singapore are not only very modern, but also has the best recycling rate in the world. These countries all manage to recycle 40% to 60% of their municipal waste, also including Styrofoam, the very large amount of waste types.
As one of the common plastic products, single-use cups are our common enemy. Whether coffee, smoothies or fountain soda, plastic and Styrofoam disposable cups, they are everywhere. These cups, after being used, are thrown away, either staying in landfills for years or slowly decomposing or leach toxins into the environment.
In the United States, it is estimated that 23 billion paper cups were used in 2010. On average, Americans also throw away 25 billion Styrofoam coffee cups a year and 2.5 million plastic beverage bottles an hour, which take longer to break down than paper.
The problem is that most of the Styrofoam cups disposed today will still be in landfills 500 years from now. If you only buy one cup of coffee or tea per day in a single-use cup, you'll end up producing about 23 pounds of waste in a year.
Burning and landfill are not the best way to handle Styrofoam waste, because this plastic type is difficult to break down in the natural environment, and burning also causes air pollution. What we really should do is to recycle it.
You will find many types of Styrofoam recycling machines and must be familiar with GREENMAX, the specialist among the foam recycling industry. The company has come up with the best solution to recycle Styrofoam coffee cups.
