ONEONTA – Martha is here, and she’s going to make Otsego County cleaner.
Named for “avid recycler” Martha Clarvoe, an active OCCA committee member and former president, Martha – the machine – is the new polystyrene recycler, just installed at ARC Otsego’s ReUse Center.
“It takes 30 pounds of Styrofoam and condenses that into a four-foot cube,” Bill Hardy, the ReUse Center’s Manager, said. “That means, all that Styrofoam will not be in landfills.”
