Styrofoam (Polystyrene)

There are no local outlets for recycling polystyrene.
Foam blocks, like the packaging typically used to secure electronics or appliances in shipping, are called "expanded polystyrene molders" or EPS. Clean, uncontaminated EPS packaging can be brought to:

Gold Circuit E-Cycling in Palmer, MA.

or mailed to:
Polyfoam Corporation
2355 Providence Road
Northbridge, MA 01534
(508) 234-6323

The EPS should be free from any significant dirt, tape, or any other contaminants and should be marked with the plastics symbol #6 (in the triangle or chasing arrows). Foodservice items are NOT accepted -- only foam block packaging. The consumer is responsible for the shipping fees.
