What can I do with my foam packaging that comes around electronics or appliances?
Residential polystyrene foam packaging is included in a provincial recycling program, managed by Multi-Material BC. This includes foam polystyrene packaging (styrofoam) to protect appliances, as well as foam take out and meat containers. For a complete list of accepted products, visit the Multi-Material BC website. Through this program, polystyrene can be dropped off free of charge at a number of recycling depots across the province. To find a location in your community, call the RCBC Recycling Hotline or visit our Recyclepedia.
This program does not include packaging from businesses or industry. For more information on commercial plastic recycling in your area, contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline.
