A Bit about Styrofoam

You may not know that styrofoam (Expanded Polystyrene, or EPS for short) is recyclable, and with our help of you can easily recycle yours. If it breaks apart easily and has a #6 recycling logo, its good to go.

Washington residents threw out 12,890 tons of polystyrene foam packaging in 2017, according to a state Department of Ecology report. That’s about the same weight as two of the large ferries that serve the Bainbridge Island route — and because the material is mostly air, it would occupy an even greater volume. The good news is that because it's mostly air, styrofoam can be compressed by up to 50:1.

This makes it economical to transport! Recycle My Styrofoam does just that, and can process up to 500 cubic feet of styrofoam an hour. Thats about 650 pounds of the squeaky white stuff- if you have a large one time, or repeating pick up, you've come to the right place.
