FoamRecycle is a new company established in San Pablo, California, that is offering foam recycling programs and services. The company accepts drop off foam at its warehouse, and offers foam scrap pick up from the customer’s location. It also provides foam recycling equipment rental and free recycling cost assessments, especially for large foam scrap quantities.
Polystyrene foam sometimes is seen as a source of waste for many manufacturers and distributors, but it is recyclable. The FoamRecycle plant becomes the 86th foam recycling center in the United States. The plant will serve the Bay area in California, and is located in the middle of Silicon Valley.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), expanded polypropylene (EPP), and polyethylene (PE foam), will be collected and recycled by FoamRecycle. The company has a complete line of recycling equipment from foam compactors and foam densifiers to foam shredders. The compactor will press and compact the foam into logs while the thermal densifiers melt the foam, and the shredders reduce the foam into strips or into foam beads.
FoamRecycle is able to collect up to 300 cubic feet of foam from a customer’s site and has a large storage facility to store foam until it can be recycled. FoamRecycle also offers rental services of its foam recycling equipment for those companies that do not have foam material on a regular basis and want to recycle per project while saving costs. The recycling rental services are custom and tailored to the customer’s needs.
The FoamRecycle center is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., and is located at 1005 Broadway, in San Pablo, California. For more information about FoamRecycle, please visit www.foamrecycle.org or call 510-619-4472.
