There is a misconception that Styrofoam TM (Expandable PolyStyrene or EPS) is not recyclable and that is wrong. EPS recycling is growing stronger every day. Styrofoam TM or EPS is the number "6" recycling plastic and it must be reduced or compacted to make it feasible to ship to a plastics recycler. It has become a coveted raw material for recyclers and they are discovering a wide range of markets for it.
