We are a member of the Alliance of Foam Packaging Recyclers (AFPR) which maintains a deep commitment to the sustainability and protection of our environment.


Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is earth friendly and 100% recyclable. Steam is used it the manufacturing process of EPS resulting in very little water usage. Water run-off from the machine cycle gets reused for other cycles. Waste from the EPS manufacturing process is minimal. What scrap is generated during this process can be reground and recycled back into the production of foam products. Scrap can also be used as loose filler for packaging (a better cushion and insulator than packaging peanuts.

The manufacturing process of EPS foam uses no HCFCs (hydrochlorofluorocarbon) or CFCs (chlorofluorocarbon), which can cause damage to our ozone layer. EPS is not biodegradable and, therefore, waste does not break down into toxic compounds or other hazardous materials allowing it to be easily recovered without causing damaging effects to our land or water systems.


For post-consumer EPS recycling, locations can easily be found on the internet.  To be able to be recycled, EPS must be clean and free of dirt and debris.  It must also have no adhesive materials, corrugated or films. EPS recycling continues to be a driving force in post-consumer recycling with one of the highest rates in all of the plastics family.
