Why can’t I put styrofoam in my recycling tote?

When styrofoam (foam meat trays, takeout containers, foam packaging) is placed in curbside totes, these materials break into unrecoverable pieces which contaminate the load. Please take styrofoam to a Recycling Centre to be properly handled and recycled.
