Expanded Polystyrene Recycling
As one of the leading recycling companies in Ireland, Rehab Recycle collects and recycles clean expanded polystyrene (EPS) from businesses, civic amenity sites and industry.
EPS is most commonly used as a packaging material for electronic and electrical equipment. Also known by a number of trade names such as Styrofoam and Aeroboard, EPS is bulky and will never decompose.
Reprocessed, the plastic from polystyrene can be used in a wide array of everyday products such as clothes hangers, CD cases and stationery.
EPS is collected using reusable environmentally friendly 1 cubic metre and 2 cubic metre polypropylene sacks. Customers simply fill the bags with polystyrene and Rehab Recycle collect it on either a regular schedule or on a 'call-in' basis.
Rehab Recycle estimate that customers who use the EPS recycling service can save up to 40 per cent on standard waste disposal rates. The new recycling facility is initially being developed for the Greater Dublin region and there are plans to expand the service to other locations nationwide in the future.
