Polystyrene Recycling Hotline

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) generally cannot be collected in your council recycling service. Generally only larger industrial quantities are recycled in Australia.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a lightweight, rigid cellular plastic that is used widely as a packaging medium. Its shock absorbing characteristics lend it to uses as storage and transport of fragile and expensive items such as electronic equipment, chemicals and wines.

Confusion with polystyrene

  • PS Plastic Containers marked with 6Some polystyrene materials such as foam cups, trays or foam packaging are marked with this symbol.
  • This symbol is part of the Plastic Identification Code.
  • This code identifies the type of plastic the product is - not if it can be recycled.
  • People often confuse the 'plastic identification code' for the general recycling symbol (mobius loop), which involves three chasing arrows.
