1. Clean Styrofoam packaging and food containers are collected from all recycling depot locations and delivered to a local Polydensifier processor.

  2. Styrofoam packaging and food containers (ratio 2:1) are put through a densification system that compresses the material to remove the air and reduce the volume to create compact bricks. Densified, stackable bricks are a cost-efficient method of transport, as less trucks are required.

  3. Styrofoam recycling companies take the densified foam bricks and turn them into a plastic resin that look like small pellets or beads.

  4. The pellets are then used in the manufacturing of a variety of products including picture frames, crown moulding and benches.
