Effective April 1st, Miller Waste will no longer accept Styrofoam, including all #6 materials, as recycling and will now have to go into the garbage stream due to the lack of any market accepting this material for reuse. Except for large packing Styrofoam, all other Styrofoam products must be placed in your tagged garbage bags. The large packaging Styrofoam can still be put in a clear plastic bag and placed out with your garbage on your scheduled garbage day. No bag tag will be required for this clear bag, however the bag will part of the 3 bag limit for garbage. (Source: muskoka411.com)
