serving Stockton, Tracy, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Lathrop, Escalon and San Joaquin County

How do I recycle or properly dispose of...


For Styrofoam Peanuts click here

Styrofoam is a recyclable material that is used to package goods to protect them against damage until they are purchased by the consumer.  Styrofoam is very bulky and lightweight, making it a difficult item to collect for recycling.  Fortunately, there are a few recycling opportunities within the County for this material.  Styrofoam block can be used in the manufacturing of new styrofoam products and other products such as finish molding for construction and home improvement.
