Styrofoam Packaging to be RecycledWaste diversion programs are available for both large and small businesses. In fact, we are one of the largest Styrofoam™/EPS foam recycling centers in the country. Commercial customers that regularly receive large amounts of EPS foam - such as the RV industry, manufacturing and shipping, and automobile dealers - can help reduce the amount of foam and other waste that ends up in landfills.
Best practices are used throughout our responsible recycling services. Our foam recycling plant in Elkhart, Indiana, has the most advanced technology and machinery to support environmental solutions for our planet.

Drop Off Options

Local businesses and individuals can drop off all recycling items we accept at our facility. There are outdoor bins on our property for recyclable materials like paper products, cardboard boxes, Styrofoam™/EPS foam products, and plastics.
There is no charge to drop off recyclable materials. This option works well for individuals who do not have convenient curbside recycling, forgot to place carts outside on their collection day, or cannot schedule a makeup collection day.
For added convenience, individuals may use our Home 4 Foam program.  This allows you to print a shipping label and mail your EPS foam to us for proper handling.

Business Services That Make Sense for You

Businesses with large amounts of recyclables can drop off their items at our facility or we can pick up your recyclables. You can also have your recycling items shipped to us. We accept recyclable items from commercial customers in both smaller quantities up to a semi-trailer full of material.
Items collected for cardboard or paper recycling can cost your business nothing. In fact, based on market value, we may pay you for these items by weight. If your business needs assistance purchasing the right size baler for cardboard recyclables, contact us today.
From balers to compactors, the equipment can be provided through lease, lease to purchase, and purchase arrangements. Call or email us to discuss the right equipment for your business.

Let our experienced team audit your waste items and review or create a waste diversion program for your business.
