At Styropack we design our products to use the minimum amount of material required to deliver the performance required.
Thousands of tonnes of polystyrene are recycled every year in the UK. This recycling is undertaken by responsible business organisations as currently no local authorities on mainland UK have set up polystyrene recycling outlets.
Polystyrene is a single, inert polymer which makes it extremely straightforward and safe to handle during collection, processing and recycling.
REDUCE, Reuse, Recycle
The three Rs are a fundamental to all waste reduction strategies.
Styropack invests in energy efficient machinery and is committed to sustainable manufacture processes. All Styropack manufacturing sites are certified to ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Standard.
Reduce, RE-USE, Recycle
Even better than recycling, polystyrene can be re-used. Any broken products during the production process are broken up, ground back to the original bead size and used again in new products. This means there is zero waste in the Styropack manufacturing process.
Styropack will take back clean polystyrene and re-use it in new products such as packaging and insulation board.
