Drop Off Your EPS After Christmas

It’s (after) Christmas and that means presents and new home products have been purchased, wrapped and unwrapped.  Many products are packed in lightweight EPS foam packaging for superior protection and economical shipping…instead of throwing it to the curb this year, recycle EPS!

Plymouth Foam is inviting everyone to bring their foam packaging to our plant in  Plymouth, Wisconsin to be recycled as future packaging products.  We are open the week after Christmas on Dec 27-28, 2017; look for the drop off area at the ramp next to the front office.
