How to recycle/dispose of foam packaging (Styrofoam™)

Put foam packaging, or polystyrene, into your regular trash. We also accept foam packaging, or polystyrene, as trash at our Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station.

Many local "mailing solution" stores accept peanuts. Put your peanuts into a bag or box and take them to a location near you. These stores reuse the peanuts, which is even better than recycling them.

Find a recycling location for foam peanuts, or "loose fill", and other foam packaging, using the EPS Industry Alliance lookup tool.
