Foamex is a proud, long-serving member of Expanded Polystyrene Australia (EPSA), and committed to responsibly recycling expanded polystyrene (EPS).

Divert your EPS waste from landfill, and recycle it instead. Did you know that EPS is 100% recyclable? And up to 7 times! Foamex takes your clean polystyrene and manufactures it back into sustainable building products for Australian homes. All EPS processing is undertaken in our Victorian factories, which are fully operated on renewable energy sources.

There are 3 locations in Victoria. Drop off Mon-Fri (excluding weekends & public holidays)

  • Bayswater North – 33 Gatwick Road (8.00am – 4.00pm)
  • Somerton – 17 Freight Drive (8.00am – 4.00pm)
  • Coolaroo – 430 Barry Road (8.00am – 3.00pm)

IMPORTANT: EPS must be clean and free from contaminants (ie coloured dye, sticky tape, labels & food). Whitegoods, furniture and appliance packaging is ideal.

A car boot load of expanded polystyrene waste is free for everyone.

We also pick up and recycle commercial quantities of expanded polystyrene waste in certain areas, at an additional cost. Please contact us for a quote. Contact us on 1300 AU FOAM (1300 283 626) or
