Can the Styrofoam food containers that you order food in be placed into a microwave to reheat the food?

Styrofoam food containers are not meant for the microwave and not considered microwave safe since the Styrofoam containers will melt.

Although I've reheated some food in a Styrofoam container but not for more than 30 seconds. Any longer than 30 seconds the Styrofoam container will melt.
