Styrofoam is found everywhere. Packing material, carryout containers, cups, coolers and more. Though convenient, styrofoam is not recyclable in Nags Head, is not biodegradable, and is very harmful to wildlife.
Alternatives to styrofoam are:
- Choosing paper when available.
- Bringing reusable options.
- Dining in instead of taking out.
If you don't have time to haul your recyclables to the recycling centers we have at town hall (5401 South Croatan Highway) and our public services facility (2200 Lark Avenue), subscribe to the curbside recycling collection service offered by TFC Recycling. The cost is only $9/month thanks to a $5/month subsidy from the Town.
