Frequent Questions

What is the best way to dispose of polystyrene waste, such as food containers?

We are unable to provide you with a recommendation on the disposal of polystyrene waste. We recommend contacting the Plastics Foodservice Packaging Group, a trade association located in Washington, DC. The Council helps the public understand the need for and value of polystyrene, and can provide factsheets about polystyrene in the environment, including issues concerning solid waste disposal, recycling, and CFC phaseout.

The Plastics Foodservice Packaging Group is at EPA
