Foam/Packaging Peanuts

Waste Management Services is now collecting Block Packing Foam (Polystyrene) and Packing Peanuts for recycling and reuse.

How's it work? It's easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Put packaging peanuts and block foam in separate, clear plastic bags, since they are delivered to two different locations.
  2. Place bagged material at the loading dock area.
  3. Call 763-5539 or email for a pick up.

All foam must be clean and dry. Only white, rigid, #6 foam is accepted.
