When your bag is full, add it onto your next regular pickup for just $9. We'll leave a new one in its place!
What happens to Styrofoam* once Ridwell collects it?
Trained team members screen for non-qualifying material like wet styrofoam or stickers that need removing
Screened product is consolidated and transported to local partner
Partners reduce material into dense blocks that can be used to make new products (like picture frames) or revert them even further into their original chemical components, which can then be used over and over again.
How large are the bags?
Our Styrofoam bags are more than 4x larger than our Ridwell bin, so they'll fit even your bulkiest pieces!
If your Styrofoam is too tall, try breaking it into two shorter pieces! That way you can fit even more!
And you can get as many bags as you need - just reach out if you need more than one at a time.
It's not just the big stuff
You can put these categories in your big orange bag as well!
Food containers & meat trays
Can I put it in my own bag?
Unless you've talked to us ahead of time, we'll only take Styrofoam that's in one of our orange Styrofoam bags.
* When we say Styrofoam, we are actually referring to items in the polystyrene foam family, not just Styrofoam-brand products. Technically, there's no such thing as a “Styrofoam” cup. In fact, Styrofoam™ Brand Foam is a registered trademark of DuPont de Nemours, Inc. (“DuPont”) and is used as rigid foam insulation in above and below grade applications, structural insulated sheathing, motorhomes, caravans insulated trucks, under or over highways, tunnels and insulation pipes and even is used in the floral and craft market.
