Recyle your styrofoam peanuts

Did you know you can recycle your styrofoam packing peanuts

The UPS Store in Woodland Park recycles all styrofoam packing peanuts.  What they don't recycle are the biodegradable cellulose packing peanuts ... How to tell the difference?  Biodegradeable packing peanuts dissolve in water!  Foam peanuts don't.   

See the image below for what the UPS Store recycles.
