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
Households in Eugene and Springfield can recycle small quantities of Styrofoam at no charge.
What We Accept: white block styrofoam with the #6 recycling symbol or peanuts. These should be packaged separately.
NO: food containers/cups, etc.
NO: wet or dirty Styrofoam
There is a small fee for businesses, or for amounts larger than a shopping cart full. Click here for more info about our styrofoam recycling program and pick ups.
