Plymouth Foam Hosts Annual Holiday EPS Recycling Event

Once again this holiday season, Plymouth Foam participated in our annual Holiday EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) Recycling Event!


For two days following Christmas, we hosted a recycling event. During this time, we invited the community to recycle their EPS foam packaging by dropping it off at our plant located in Plymouth, Wisconsin.


As a note to all those reading our blog, we are always able to accept #6 Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam at our recycling bin located at 1800 Sunset Drive in Plymouth. Pound by pound, our team is dedicated to breaking down the barriers of EPS foam and its ability to be recycled!
