restricted access Styroblock™ containers: The afterlife-a zero-waste solution through re-use on green roofs
Abstract

Nurseries that produce a variety of plant species often grow them in Styroblock™ container systems. A major problem with these systems, however, is finding a method of disposal for "retired blocks" once they are no longer useable. One solution can be to recycle old blocks as light fill for landscaping, particularly in green roof applications. They can provide an economic and environmentally sound alternative to traditional landscaping products.
