    2000lbs of styrene king and tail ads in the landfill every 6 months. Some scavenged and used for shop/diy projects. Way to dirty to be printed on backside, as tried many times.

    Cannot find any recyclers who will take the stuff around here. Not even the used tire melter/shredder guys.

    Any idears?

    check with your styrene supplier. they should love to take it back press it out pellet it and make styrene again.

    our styrene supplier pays us $.04 per pound to take back and also has recycle partners all over country that the outdoor posting companies can send the styrene back to be post processed.

    This. We have had Primex send a truck to pick up skids of drops out of runs and credit our account. Can't remember the price, but it seems close to $.04 per pound. A win-win for everybody.
