Before accepting any polystyrene we need to be able to see the polystyrene to determine whether or not it has been contaminated. Forms of contamination include;
- Metal sheets
- Concrete and
If unsure whether or not your polystyrene is contaminated, email through an image today. Please note we only accept EPS, as we CANNOT accept or recycle PP, HDPE, LPDE, or any other plastics.
All pieces (except large solid blocks and sheets) must be contained by way of a box or bag to ensure containment of all pieces on delivery or pickup. Depending on the volume of polystyrene we do conduct site visits to ensure we can process the material and advise on volumes we can accept per drop-off – so that it can all be done in a timely manner.
However, if the material has contamination issues we will advise you on how to rectify this so that the material can be processed properly. Once the material has been dropped off at our site, one of our staff members will inspect the polystyrene to make sure there is no contamination, otherwise, we will reject the drop-off. Since we offer the service of ‘FREE’ drop off we are quite strict with the state of how the product is dropped off, as we do not want to be faced with dumping fees to dump waste.
