b2ap3 large Polystyrene Recycling

Foamex is dedicated to maintaining a sustainable environment for the next generations. That’s why our manufacturing process has been designed with the environment in mind.

At Foamex, all our polystyrene manufacturing waste is recycled or converted into other products. In fact, virtually all of our expanded polystyrene manufacturing waste is reused for products that serve expanded polystyrene end-users, building and construction sites, and other expanded polystyrene manufacturers. By doing so, we minimise the waste in the environment and keep it sustainable for the generations to come.

Foamex’s commitment to polystyrene recycling extends to construction sites and end-users. We provide bags for on-site clean-up and work with contractors to organise the pick-up of any waste or unused expanded polystyrene so that it can be granulated for re-use in new products.

By choosing expanded polystyrene from Foamex, you’re making a commitment to a sustainable future. Other energy-saving qualities of expanded polystyrene include:

  • fully recyclable
  • high R-value to reduce energy usage
  • water resistant to minimise waste
  • comprised of 98 percent air
  • lightweight meaning reduced fuel consumption during transportation
  • resilient which minimises manufacturing for replacement products
  • no chlorofluorocarbons (CFC)

As a proud member of the Recycling Expanded Polystyrene Australia (REPSA), Foamex follows all the recommended distribution and clean-up responsibilities and procedures for expanded polystyrene.
