We buy compacted expanded polystyrene (EPS) and recycle it for use as insulation in the building trade.

Once compacted, expanded polystyrene can be efficiently and effectively recycled into useful household goods in the same way as other types of plastic.

Here at Ecogen we buy compacted EPS from a variety of industries and some of the items we most commonly recycle are:

  • White Goods Packaging - from distribution centres and appliance deliveries

  • Fish Box Packaging - from food production companies and smokeries

What's more, our extensive links within the industry mean that we are happy to provide advice on the best EPS compaction equipment to buy, and offer introductions to trusted machine manufacturers.

Call our dedicated account management team today to discuss the prices we can offer for your expanded polystyrene waste, and the opportunities available to improve your current compaction processes to maximise future revenue potential.
