Sustainable Surf and Waste Management to Host Waste to Waves Recycle Drive on April 26

Manhattan Beach residents can help turn packaging foam into surfboards and other products and keep waste out of California oceans, beaches and landfills with the Waste to Waves Earth Day Foam Recycle Drive. Sustainable Surf and Waste Management will collect materials from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on April 26th at Manhattan Beach’s annual Earth Day Celebration and Concert in Polliwog Park, located at 1601 Manhattan Beach Boulevard.

“A passion for surfing and for the ocean inspires all of Sustainable Surf’s projects and it’s exciting to help create something as useful and beautiful as a surfboard out of trash,” said Kevin Whilden, co-founder of Sustainable Surf. “The Waste to Waves program has successfully collected over 40,000 pounds of waste packaging foam in the past three years and we are very excited to be working with Waste Management to continue increasing that number.”

All clean packaging foam received will be recycled, and make new products like surfboards. A complete list of acceptable materials is located at http://wastetowaves.org/faq/. Visit www.wastetowaves.org and www.sustainablesurf.org or email askgreen@wm.com for additional information.
