EPS Foam (Styrofoam®) is not recycled through most town 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 an ongoing recycling program. All EPS Foam that is collected through the programs listed on this web site will be recycled or reused.
The towns 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 leaving us a message.
