With over 1,050 EPS drop-off locations nationwide, users can access recycling information in just one or two clicks.

The EPS Industry Alliance has developed several new tools to help consumers locate local EPS collection centers.

Loose fill reuse centers have been provided with business card inserts displaying a QR code that when scanned with a smart phone or tablet will direct to the EPS Reuse and Recycling Google map. These cards can be easily reproduced and included in packages that contain EPS loose fill. Participating businesses will be clearly labeled as loose fill drop-off locations by a newly designed, eye-catching window sticker.

Drop-off locations for loose fill packaging, otherwise known as packing peanuts, reuse the material for their own packaging needs, providing a mutually beneficial service for themselves and people seeking to dispose of their EPS.

Locations that recycle other EPS, such as the packaging you may find protecting electronics, produce new EPS or convert it in to raw materials used to produce new products, reducing material requirements and energy use.
