Block Styrofoam Recycling

Here at Earth Friendly Recycling we’re committed to saving our landfills from polystyrene block foam, where it will NEVER degrade. Please read below for examples of foam we accept and can’t accept. 

#6 Clean White Block Foam

We accept clean, white block polystyrene foam. This foam breaks when bent and should be free of food contamination, tape or stickers. Keep separate from packing peanuts.

Packing Peanuts

Accepting clean packing peanuts! Please bag separately from block foam in a clear bag.

Below are examples of foam we are NOT accepting:

Contaminated Foam

We only accept clean, white block polystyrene foam. All foam should be free of food contamination, tape and stickers.
Contaminated foam will be rejected. This includes clean foam mixed with packing peanuts. Please bag packing peanuts separately,

Polyethylene or Polyurethane Foam

This common packing material is spongy and can be any color. This foam will not break when bent. We can not accept this type of foam at this time.

Expanding Spray Foam

Spray foam of any chemistry. This includes instapak expanding packing.

Extruded Polystyrene Foam

This foam is normally colored pink, green or blue. This foam has a much higher density than expanded block foam. Unfortunately, we aren't accepting this at this time.

EARTH FRIENDLY RECYCLING also picks up block foam! See how little it costs to have your foam picked up and saved from the landfill.
