EPS Foam (Styrofoam®) is not recycled through most municipal programs, which means it is burned with the trash or it is put directly into the landfill, where it doesn’t break down! The municipalities and businesses listed below participate with ReFoamIt in ongoing recycling programs. All EPS Foam that is collected through the programs listed on this web site will be recycled or reused.
The municipalities and companies listed below have ongoing foam recycling programs and one day events are listed on the single event page. If you don’t see an event near you and wish to host a collection/recycle day, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Our programs are individualized so please include a phone number and the town where the event will be held when you leave us a message.

There is no charge to drop off your foam, but appointments are suggested to drop off your foam by calling 508-864-8723. We outgrew our original densifying machine and our space so we have a larger machine and a space that works for us. So please help us by calling 508-864-8723 before dropping off your foam! If we are unable to hear our phone ring or a knock at the door, please go to All-American- Recycling located on the Loading Dock Side of the building.
