A newly created device known as the StyroGenie is helping an Indiana school cut down on cafeteria waste and save money by turning used Styrofoam trays into paving bricks. About 1,200 lunch trays form two bricks, effectively dropping cafeteria trash from 52 bags each day to 15, said Foodservices Director Kathy Kane. The bricks will be used to create a walkway at the school and to decorate a school garden.
