Step 1: Remove the Styrofoam from the trash can. The curbside trash can will not accept your waste if they see Styrofoam in it. Moreover, Styrofoam already occupies 25% of California's landfills space, polluting the environment without any benefits.
Step 2: Styrofoam waste may also not be accepted at the recycling center near you. Some centers may accept Styrofoam, but it's hard to find. If you do find a center that can hold excess Styrofoam, chances are that they will not accept any that held food or medical products.

Step 3: Keep Styrofoam in a safe place. Packaging companies always use Styrofoam to ensure the integrity of the items being shipped, and you can do the same. The next time you open a box containing Styrofoam shield, don't throw it away. Place Styrofoam in plastic bags for the next time you need to ship. The same goes for packaged peanuts. Just make sure you keep excess Styrofoam away from food and medical products.
Step 4: Contact local recyclers. Currently, many recyclers have invested their own Styrofoam densifier. You can send the waste Styrofoam to the local recyclers. After compacting, the Styrofoam blocks will be sold to the manufacturer for granulation and used for the production of new foam products.
Step 5: You can suggest to the local government department to carry out regular Styrofoam recycling activities to collect foam waste from residents and communities, and finally concentrate them for disposal. In fact, with the support of local policies, many government organizations have also purchased Styrofoam densifier to develop foam recycling business.
