How To Recycle Styrofoam

Updated: Sep 7, 2021

Many people think Styrofoam and polystyrene foam can't be recycled. They can, but because the products are mostly air, it's hard to do it profitably. One company in Mexico City figured out how.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this video incorrectly stated that Styrofoam is a brand owned by The Dow Chemical Company. In fact, DuPont de Nemours Inc. took over the trademark in 2019. The video also misidentified products as being made of Styrofoam, when in fact they are expanded polystyrene foam. We apologize for the errors.
