Styrofoam material (also known as foam#6) is widely used in our daily life, which can be found in food containers, coffee cups, beanbags and even insulation materials. While Styrofoam brings us great convenience, it also makes foam recycling a headache due to its bulky volume and lightweight. Individual families often have large foam cardboard boxes stacked and there is an urgent need of foam recycling. But in some communities in California, people have been struggling with “How can I accomplish Styrofoam recycling near me?” for a long time.

After you find the suitable foam recycling location, please take the following notice.
1． Drop off only Styrofoam that is clean, dry and uncontaminated with other materials.
2． Remove any foreign materials such as tape, stickers, labels, paint and cardboard.
3． Contain the Styrofoam in a bag, bundle or box for easy loading and unloading.
4． Make sure the material is actually Styrofoam - it looks like a composite of small white beads.
