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.
