Recycling Symbols: 6 – PS – Polystyrene

Cups, foam food trays, packing peanuts. Polystyrene (also known as Styrofoam) is a real problem as it’s bulky yet very lightweight and that makes it difficult to recycle. For example, a carload of expanded polystyrene would weigh next to nothing so there’s not a lot of materials to reclaim, particularly when you take into account the transport getting it to the point of recycling. It can, however, be reused. Learn more about recycling polystyrene.
