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
Individuals can still recycle small amounts of Styrofoam for free!
If you have a trash bag of Styrofoam or less, drop it off any St. Vinnie’s store for FREE recycling! If you have more than a trash bag, there is a suggested donation of $2-5 per trash bag. (Donations should be given to a cashier inside the store) Click for locations.
