hanguolaohu needs some help recycling:

I live in Playa Vista, a community in the Westside of Los Angeles. Although we have recycling here, it is more limited than the blue bins that the City of LA now uses which accepts plastics #1-7 and styrofoam. I just realized how many wooden chopsticks and plastic spoons and forks I accumulated...I realize that these will decompose if I throw them in the waste bin. How about plastic spoons and forks or other plastics that don't have a recycling #1-7 on them? Styrofoam? Any info would be most appreciated! Thanks.

Have any suggestions for hanguolaohu? Post here.
