The EPS Industry Alliance (EPS-IA) First Annual Excellence in EPS Recycling Award

Recycling of Expanded Polystyrene continues to be a focus point among municipalities and the EPS Industry Alliance ( has begun to award those who are putting forth extra efforts to collect and recycle this valuable product.  As an industry group, EPS-IA recognized not only member companies, but also the efforts of cities and environmental groups.  The First Annual Excellence award goes to Dart Container who has been recycling #6 foam since 1990. In 2008, however, Dart ramped up their recycling efforts by creating a new position dedicated to creating recycling programs. With the City of Los Angeles’ new residential curbside program for foam foodservice and protective packaging serving as a model, Dart began exploring ways to make sorting at material recovery facilities (MRF’s) more efficient.  See other recognized entries and complete story….
