Due to lack of storage space and an undetermined timeline of when the machine will be fixed, we have closed the styrofoam collection container at the Buyea Road Residential Station until further notice.

Please hang onto your bulky, white packaging foam until we get this resolved. Or, please place it in your garbage in the meantime. Thank you for understanding and we will let you know when the densifier is up and running again!


Accepted ONLY at the Buyea Road Residential Station:

Remove tape and labels

  • Bulky, rigid white packaging foam (EPS #6) such as foam surrounding a new electronic or appliance is accepted for recycling.

Not Accepted:

  • Packaging Peanuts
  • Styrofoam Take-Out Containers
