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

Once compacted, expanded polystyrene is 100% recyclable and can be efficiently and effectively transformed into useful household goods in the same way as other types of plastic. Although it is slow to biodegrade, this way of recycling plastics means that the materials can be used again and again instead of going to landfill, reducing plastic waste.

Here at Ecogen we buy compacted EPS from a variety of industries and some of the items we help businesses to recycle are:

  • White Goods Packaging - from distribution centres and appliance deliveries

  • Fish Box Packaging - from food and drink 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 recycling and compaction equipment to buy, and offer introductions to trusted machine manufacturers. If you are looking for cost effective polystyrene recycling in the UK, look no further than Ecogen.

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.
