ReFoamIt is a MA family owned company that recycles EPS Foam, more commonly called Styrofoam®. We are committed to recycle both white packing foam and to recycle post consumer foam such as coffee cups, clamshells, and meat and produce trays. (Please make sure that all of these items are clean and any post consumer items that were used with food must display the #6 recycling symbol.) We are now accepting items without the recycling symbol.
Last year, we acquired a second densifying machine so we can now densify #4 Polyethylene and #5 Poly Pro and we now accept packing peanuts (bagged separately) and bubblewrap.
For details about all of the items we accept, please click on the link What Can Be Recycled (Yes, this link is broken!) You can access the file from the what you can recycle page.
If you are unsure if we can accept an item, check out What can't be recycled
Because ReFoamIt has many ways to recycle foam, we received the 2014 Excellence in EPS Recycling award from the EPS Industry Alliance. http://www.epsindustry.org/eps-sustainability/excellence-eps-recycling-award
Check out all the ways you can recycle your foam!
Any questions? Call 508-872-2323 or call 508-864-8723 before bringing your foam to ReFoamIt.
Exciting news! ReFoamIt now accepts #4 and #5 foam along with #6 foam, more commonly called Styrofoam® at all of our events. Check out the What you can recycle page for more information. Link is posted above.
