Material Matters: You Don't Know Foam (aka Styrofoam)
Wednesday, December 09, 2020, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM MST
Category: Recycle Colorado Event

A solution to impact Colorado's waste diversion goal. Foam Cycle — a 2020 NextCycle contender and winner of the SWANA Bronze Award for SCUMA's EPS Recycling Program at WasteCon — is a system that can process the bulky hard-to-recycle-material we know as 'foam.'

Proud to be manufactured in Colorado, this recycling system (patent-pending) offers cities, towns and municipalities an efficient way to immediately begin collecting, densifying and re-purposing foam packaging waste at a municipal drop-off site.

Learn about:

  • Metrics: Get data on waste diversion and landfill airspace savings
  • Metrics: Formulaic trucking savings with a Styrofoam recycling program
  • Technology: Heat densification vs. cold press. Attain a size ratio of 90:1 (33% greater than cold press)
