What is the impact and how serious is it?

Expanded polystyrene foam (eps) packaging is a sensible choice for protecting your product because of its performance and environmental advantages. EPS foam uses fewer resources and less energy than alternative packaging. Efficient, lightweight and durable, EPS reduces both package size and fuel consumption during transportation. EPS is a valuable resource that can be re-manufactured back into recycled content foam packaging or made into an amazing array of durable polystyrene products – from office supplies to videocassette cartridges. No ozone-depleting CFCS have been used to manufacture EPS foam packaging.

Can I recycle my styrofoam coolers?

You can recycle EPS packaging through a network of manufacturers, re-processors and retailers across the country. The alliance of foam packaging recyclers is an organization solely dedicated to the collection (dropoff), reprocessing and reuse of clean, industrial (non food service) post-consumer EPS foam. To locate the nearest EPS foam packaging collection site, call the recycling hotline at 1-800-944-8448 or visit AFPRS web site at
