Styrofoam (EPS) is a product made from plastic (polystyrene) which has been difficult to recycle due to the fact that it is extremely lightweight, its composition is primarily air, approx. 98%. By participating and recycling your Styrofoam in our NEW Styrofoam recycling program you can help reduce the amount of new Styrofoam produced and the amount that would otherwise end of in the landfill. With this new technology readily available Styrofoam recycling has finally become a reality. Learn more about how styrofoam is recycled<a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvHuX32_–g”>here</a>
