One bridge is located approximately two miles north of County N, and the other about one mile south of County B. Amoco Foam Ozone depletion. Clogging landfills. Incinerator safety. Degrada-bility. These are concerns of the public. What's plastics' role in all this? And beyond that, what is our role as a producer of polystyrene foam products in Chippewa Falls? How do we react and what have we done on these issues? This will give some answers. First of all we are aware of the problems, concerned, and we pledged to participate wherever possible in solid waste solutions. Troubling to us is the amount of misinformation about plastics' that has shaped peoples perceptions. . Foam bans and other restrictive legislation have resulted from these misconceptions. Let's cover some of the key points. A criticism leveled at us is that foam foodservice products are made with ozone layer damaging chemicals called chlorofluorocar-bons (CFCs). Our company is not using CFCs in any of our foodservice products and the truth is that the manufacture of foam foodservice products never accounted for more than two to three percent of the total quanti Hot weather, music marks country festival CADOTT The June weekend's weather was hot, but so was the country music that drew an estimated 30,000 people to the Second Annual Country Music Festival. Fans, undaunted by 90-degree heat and stifling humidity, clapped and hoofed their way through a three-day program of veteran country music stars. "We really feel good about how the people enjoyed the concerts, Mike Asher, co-organizer of the fest, said after the concerts. ; Asher said the lineup on Friday of that weekend drew about 9,000 people, Saturday drew 13,000 and Sunday drew 11,000. "That puts us at about two and a half times the number of people we drew last year, he said. "We thought wed be happy if we drew twice last year's crowd. After the second year of the fest, he said, the organization is in the black. - : Asked about rumors that this was the last ysar for the festival, Asher said, "No way." - "You don't put two years into something like this then just say you're not doing it, he said. ; Despite the heat and large crowds, there were no crowd control incidents, said Lieutenant Marv Schroeder of the Chippewa County Sheriffs Department, head of security at the festival. : "There were no problems whatsoever, he said. "I have to commend these people for the way they behaved. - Schroeder said he was surprised by how cooperative the crowd was when deputies would ask to search coolers 'or move vehicles. Though there were no major incidents last year, he said, this year's crowd was much more cooperative. Last year's talent more contemporary country music stars appealed to a younger crowd, Asher said. Contributed photo Products replies to environmental concerns ty of CFCs used in the U.S. Nonetheless, the polystyrene industry in early 1988 announced that it was implementing a voluntary ban on the use of CFCs. Most have already made the switch. When properly incinerated, polystyrene burns cleanly. It cannot form dioxins as some have charged, because it contains no chlorine. In fact, our product bums hotter than other materials, thus helping to incinerate even wet materials. As waste-to-energy incineration grows, polystyrene will be beneficial to the process. It's true that polystyrene does not degrade in landfills. But neither do many supposedly degradable products. Being stable and inert, foam products do not contribute to the formation of methane gas or generate groundwater pollution which are serious landfill concerns. Stable products are needed in the landfill for the eventual day when the land is put to other use such as for recreation areas. Though many may not realize it, plastics, especially polystyrene, are among the most easily recycled materials. Our plant recycles almost 100 of our in-house plas Diamonds on Grand: Where elegance If you haven't stopped by to check out Chippewa Fall's newest and most exciting jewelry store, then you owe it to yourself to do so.

Floyd now lives and works from his home in Rice Lake. Stop in at tic scrap daily. This is common in our industry. Several groundbreaking pilot projects are underway now to recycle foam foodserving packaging. Amoco Foam Products is involved in a pilot project in the metropolitan New York area which will collect mixed wastes from, 20 McDonald's restaurants for separation and processing. The recycled polystyrene will then be manufactured into non-food materials such as a building protection product we make here. Other companies have announced commercial polystyrene recycling facilities. Given time and commitment, polystyrene recycling can work. At this time, polystyrene foam products are the only foodservice disposables being recycled and that may stay that way, since many alternatives are made of composite materials that cannot' be reprocessed. Banning foam will not reduce the use of foodservice products or free up landfills. Households and businesses will simply substitute cups, dishes and utensils made from other products.
