Styrofoam Recycling

We shred and compress Styrofoam (#6 Expanded Polystyrene) into logs, making it more cost-effective to transport to recyclers.  Styrofoam peanuts are used at Aurora Glass or resold in our thrift stores.

How to Recycle Styrofoam

It's FREE for Households!

Individuals can deliver small quantities (up a grocery cart full) of Styrofoam to any St. Vinnie's Donation Center at no charge. Click for locations.

What We Accept: White block styrofoam with the #6 recycling symbol. And/or styrofoam packing peanuts.  (Packing peanuts need to be secured in their own bag, preferably a bag that is clear or transparent)

NO: food containers/cups, etc.

NO: wet or dirty Styrofoam

 

It's Affordable for Businesses!

For quantities larger than a shopping cart, we need the material to go to our Car Lot Location at 1175 Hwy 99 N, Eugene OR.

Drop Off fees are as follows:
