Correction re: chicken trays
This article was originally published in August 2016
We’re only as good as our information and we’re sorry to say we made a mistake in last month’s cover story, “Plastics and packaging.”
We stated incorrectly that Draper Valley’s white foam chicken trays are recyclable. We’ve since learned they are Styrofoam and must be disposed of as garbage. Draper Valley says its machinery hasn’t been able to accommodate the compostable trays on the market but it’s still looking for one that might work . We’ll keep you posted.
