Can I recycle Styrofoam?

Most local recycling programs do not accept Styrofoam for curbside collection; a few have special drop-off programs. Before disposing of Styrofoam in the garbage consider reusing it as packing material or breaking it up and mixing it with soil in flowerpots to enhance moisture retention.
