[ARCHIVED] Styrofoam Collection Day - Saturday, October 29

The SAD News

The Lebanon Solid Waste Facility is unable to accept styrofoam in its recycling center. Unfortunately, it must be disposed of as regular trash.

The GOOD News

Sustainable Lebanon is once again partnering with the Lebanon Rotary Club to offer a polystyrene (styrofoam) collection day on Saturday, October 29, from 9:00am to 11:00am at 227 Mechanic Street in Lebanon (behind Jake’s Coffee). The event will take place rain or shine. 

Various types of foam will be collected for recycling including polystyrene #6 (EPS) and #6 foodservice foam which will be driven to the Gilford, NH recycling facility. This includes packaging foam used for TVs and appliances, as well as foam coolers. Foodservice foam includes food containers, trays, cups, and egg cartons. 

  • Please make sure that all tape and labels are removed and all foam is clean, dry, and free of food residue or other debris.
  • There is no fee to participate, but donations are welcome to support the costs associated with this event. Donations can be made at the event via cash or check (payable to Sustainable Lebanon) or online at Thanks in advance for considering a donation!

NOTE: Since items will no longer be going to the facility in Palmer, MA, this event will NOT be collecting #4 EPE or #6 XPS foam insulation board. Foam peanuts should be brought directly to the UPS Store at True Value Hardware in Hanover
