There are many locations in Sydney where you can access commercial polystyrene recycling services. With these organizations that offer a variety of pick-up or drop-off services. Expanded polystyrene is often used for packaging and in construction and insulation, and as a filler for residential and commercial panels.
Styrofoam is completely recyclable! EPS recycling via Nicsons Building Products are easily compacted, then ground and melted into new products such as pens, hangers, photo frames, and wood-based materials. When melted, the expanded polystyrene becomes a rigid polystyrene block and shrinks to its original volume.
Facilitate transportation for recycling and reuse of new products. There is an expanded network of polystyrene recycling partners in Sydney and around the world. We work together to support the end-of-life recycling of EPS products.
Expanded polystyrene is 98% air and 2% polystyrene, which makes it very light. Expanded polystyrene can be a problem if not handled properly. If damaged, the tiny pearls can easily explode and become unwanted trash. Help us protect the environment by following these guidelines:
– Store and transport EPS in tightly closed bags or containers
– Avoid cutting or breaking the EPS into several pieces to reduce the spread of dust or debris
– Make sure there is no ordinary trash in the bag or bucket
– Secure them to make sure they don't explode
