We want you to think differently about expanded polystyrene (EPS). Why? Because it is  100% recyclable - and repeatedly so! It can be re-purposed and used in everyday, essential items like car seats, bike helmets, food and medical transport, and of course, as sustainable building insulation for Australian homes. At Foamex, we place recycled polystyrene back into building products that are essential to building thermally efficient and Passive homes.

So please, divert it from landfill and give it to us. 

Local drop-off is available in your local area.

 For more information on expanded polystyrene recycling, please visit 

IMPORTANT: Polystyrene must be clean and free of contaminants (ie Sticky Tape, Labels and Food). Check out our flyer on what can be recycled, and what can be recycled. 

A car boot load, heaped single trailer, utility, van or small truck is FREE (amounts under 20m3 do not attract a charge but it MUST BE CLEAN).

We also take commercial quantities! Please contact us at (03) 8739 5800 to discuss rates.


You might not know this, but.....

For many years, Foamex have been following a stringent recycling process within our own factories, where all offcuts are put back into the manufacturing process. This also occurs at building sites, where we pick up scraps and left over products for re-processing. Furthermore, it’s worth mentioning that all the energy we use in Victorian and South Australian factories comes from renewable energy sources like windfarms, solar and more. We have also installed solar panels on the first of our factories (with other factories to follow), to continue to reduce our emissions.
