White polystyrene

Polystyrene is favoured for its insulating and protective qualities, and is often chosen for packaging. Unfortunately due to the material’s bulkiness, it is financially and environmentally expensive to send to landfill.

We are able to assist you with these issues and recycle any clean white polystyrene, or indeed any other packaging an office or household may generate. We can supply specialist bags free of charge, and for larger volumes you can use one of our bins or cages.


We are happy to collect clean, coloured, or clear polythene bags that do not need to be separated before collection. 

We are also able to collect the following items:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Clear carrier bags
  • Coloured carrier bags
  • Shrink wrap
  • Stretch wrap

What happens to your polystyrene & polythene?

It can take thousands of years for your packaging to break down in landfill, but it only takes Printwaste Recycling and Shredding a few days from collection to be able to recycle polystyrene straight back into packaging. Polythene can also be manufactured back into products like new shrinkwrap to ensure your waste material is recycled and to give you a 'greener' alternative to using a landfill site.
