Clean Polystyrene (StyrofoamŪ) is now recyclable through the Long Beach residential recycling program. You can place the following in your purple recycling cart:

  • StyrofoamŪ cups and containers
  • Packaging, such as StyrofoamŪ eggshell cartons and block packing
  • StyrofoamŪ clamshell packaging

StyrofoamŪ packaging peanuts are not recyclable,but they are reusable.

Many mailing and packaging stores, including The UPS Store Etc. and FedEx Office welcome donations of clean packaging peanuts.
