Foam Fest: Styrofoam Recycling Event

  • KWD Inc. 660 Douglas St. (Route 16) Uxbridge, Mass. (map)

About: The second Blackstone Heritage Corridor Inc. event offers residents of any community the opportunity to recycle Styrofoam, which isn’t accepted in any local curbside recycling program. KWD recycles expanded polystyrene (EPS/#6) products, also known as Styrofoam, and offers this service every day with a drop-off station on its loading dock. Foam Fest serves as an open house to allow people an inside look at the recycling operation and learn which products are accepted. Styrofoam brought to KWD must be clean and dry and, if dropped off on the loading dock, should be placed into a plastic bag. Common Styrofoam products accepted for recycling include firm white foam used in shipping, standard packing peanuts (not biodegradable), meat trays, produce trays, and coffee cups that have been washed and dried.
