Decomposition of Materials
I am trying to find how many years it takes for cigerette
butts, aluminum cans,Plastic bottles and polystyrene foam to decompose if they
are discarded in dumps and road side litter.
I would check with either the EPA or with Chinet. Chinet tries to show
from their studies that their paper plates take less time to decompose.
