What types of EPS are accepted as part of the program?
To make the program viable and to recycle the collected EPS, we need your help in ensuring that only clean EPS is deposited in the recycle bins. Please follow these guidelines when bringing your EPS to one of our recycle drop-off sites:
- Bring only EPS that is clean, dry and uncontaminated with other materials
- Remove any foreign materials such as tape, stickers, labels, paint and cardboard.
- Contain the EPS in a bag, bundle or box for easy loading and unloading. However, please only place EPS in the bin.
- Make sure the material is actually EPS – look for the #6 recycling symbol.
- Food containers with the #6 recycling symbol. These containers must be clean and free of any food contaminants.
The city will not accept:
- Dirty food containers, meat trays, disposable cups, etc.
- Packing peanuts
- Bubble wrap

Quick Facts About EPS
In 1999, an estimated 300,000 tons of EPS was landfilled in California at an estimated cost of $30 million. Due to its light weight, EPS is a large source of litter both on land and in waterways. Cities bear the cost of cleaning up this material with clean-up costs for litter estimated at over one dollar per pound. Collecting EPS and directing it towards recycling helps save money and is good for the environment.
