Polystyrene (EPS, styrofoam) is an excellent packaging material due to its insulating and protective properties. Unfortunately, once goods are delivered and opened polystyrene then becomes a waste material that companies must pay to dispose of. Large, bulky pieces of polystyrene can take up significant space in a waste skip which means the skip becomes full more quickly, requires emptying more frequently and thus increasing costs. It is conservatively estimated that hundreds of thousands of tons of waste polystyrene is produced and sent to landfill on an annual basis. This material is very lightweight compared to its volume so it is not hard to imagine how much precious landfill space is filled with tons and tons of polystyrene.
The answer is Abilities Group!
Abilities Group recycles polystyrene using a densifier which reduces the poly by 90%. What starts our as light-weight and soft soon becomes heavy and solid. It can then be re-melted, remoulded and redirected into product production, such as picture frames.
Open 7 days, Abilities Group charges $20 per large drop off and $5 for small amounts. The polystyrene must be clean, dry and free of contamination.
Abilities Group is open to businesses and the general public at 91 Hillside Road, Glenfield, with easy parking onsite. For more information visit our website www.abilities.co.nz or contact Peter Fraher at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 027 229 2250 or 444 0611.
