How do you recycle Polystyrene Foam?

Polystyrene Foam can be recycled. However, different types of polystyrene foam have different properties therefore they should be sorted into different material types prior to compaction. For example you cannot compact EPP, EPS & EPE together as the different waste types will contaminate each other and therefore cannot be recycled.

How does a Polystyrene Foam Compactor work?

After the material is placed into the hopper, it will be efficiently shredded into smaller pieces by twin-tooth rotating shafts. The pieces are then compacted by pressure to form blocks which can be recycled.

Foam Recycling Equipment

Polystyrene Foam is widely used within many industries due to its lightweight and shock absorbing properties. However, it's bulky nature means that if uncompacted, polystyrene waste can be expensive to dispose of via traditional means. Foam Waste Compactors offer a cost-effective solution to foam waste disposal for businesses in the UK.
