Recycling is not always easy. But many of the nation’s businesses and organizations recycle expanded polystyrene (EPS) packaging products with success. EPS recycling programs vary from organization to organization but all demonstrate a commitment to the environment and to sound business practices. EPS recycling programs work best when companies can identify high-volume sources of clean material.
The basic steps critical to implementing a successful EPS recycling program include estimating the amount of EPS, finding a recycler to fit your program and budget needs and educating personnel.
