Foam Packaging FAQs

Can you recycle foam packaging?

Foam packaging is commonly made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) or polyethylene foam, both of which are not widely recycled. However, there are some options and considerations for foam packaging recycling:

  • EPS Recycling: Some specialised recycling providers can accept clean and uncontaminated EPS foam for recycling.
  • Reuse: Foam packaging is extremely robust and can often be reused, extending the life of the material. Foam peanuts for example are extremely easy to reuse.
  • Local Regulations: Recycling options and practices may vary by location, so it’s essential to check with your local recycling service provider or Local Authority to understand the specific guidelines and availability of foam packaging recycling in your area.

Always consider the most responsible and feasible disposal option available in your area to reduce waste and promote sustainability.

Macfarlane Packaging offers a full range of practical and fully recyclable alternatives to foam packaging. To discover our sustainable packaging options, talk to our experts today.
