The Recycling Process


The foam recycling process is relatively simple, and can leverage a city’s existing curbside recycling infrastructure.

Step 1
Residents place foam in the same containers as their other recyclables.

Step 2
The materials are collected curbside by a recycling truck.

Step 3
The recyclables are delivered to a sorting facility, or material recovery facility (MRF).

Step 4
The MRF sells the foam material on the open market.

Step 5
A reclaimer purchases the sorted foam and recycles it into pellets that are used to make new products.
