  • EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE 6 (EPS 6): packing foam from electronics and appliances. (1)

 

Unfortunately we CANNOT accept:

  • Glass or bottles of any kind.  We continue to search for a recycler who will accept glass.
  • Tetrapac containers (coated paper/plastic food and milk packaging)
  • Styrofoam (take out food).

 

  • We accept Recycle Expanded Polystyrene (EPS6), not to be confused with Styrofoam. EPS No. 6 is white foam commonly used to package TV’s, home appliances, computers, etc. It is composed of white beads compressed together. If you break up EPS No. 6, unlike Styrofoam, it becomes little round pieces/beads. Some of the foam will be marked with the recycle symbol with a 6 inside it.
