Large Retailers, Manufacturers and Distribution Centers in Memphis' Premier Logistics Market Have A New Option For Environmentally Sound Foam Recycling
Publish Date : 12/10/2007 5:14:00 AM   Source : Business News Onlypunjab.com

With increased pressure on today's public companies to reduce landfill and account for their environmental practices, more and more firms are seeking to recycle every possible part of their waste stream. In the past, the only option for the volumes of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), or the white styrofoam used to protect items during shipping and handling, was the landfill. Now thanks to manufacturers who have found ways to use this material again, more economical and environmentally friendly options are available.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is popular due to its light weight, ability to be easily molded into any shape, hygienic, odorless and protective qualities. EPS is commonly used as packing material, bike helmets, and insulation. According to The Polystyrene Packaging Council (PSPC) "more than 57 million pounds of post-consumer and post-industrial expanded polystyrene (EPS) packaging was recycled in 2004."

Memphis Foam Recycling provides Midsouth companies comprehensive programs to help them recycle polystyrene cost-effectively. This service is a much needed addition to the Memphis area recycling market because of the large number of distribution and third-party logistics providers here. For one large service center, Memphis Foam Recycling provides daily pick-up of their EPS waste collected when products are returned for warranty repair. Often when electronics are determined to be obsolete, companies just dispose of them and all of the accompanying packing material as it is not practical to use for new models. For another manufacturer, they collect the foam discarded from parts shipped in for use in their manufacturing process. Many centralized distribution centers in Memphis also have large volumes of foam generated by unpacking shipments of items and repackaging them for consumer use.

Memphis Foam Recycling collects homogeneous foam and processes it at their site in Memphis. This raw material is then supplied to manufacturers throughout the U.S. In order for a company to be able to recycle styrofoam efficiently, they need to have a large quantity of clean product. Memphis Foam Recycling can provide on-site trailers for collection and storage of the foam for companies who do not have space in their loading docks and warehouses.

Memphis Foam Recycling's Operations Manager Gil Montanez states "Individuals tasked with helping their companies reduce their environmental impact are excited that they can make such a significant reduction in their landfill with this service. Our clients take their corporate social responsibility seriously and being able to make such a significant reduction in their landfill contribution goes a long way with their stakeholders."

Memphis Foam Recycling offers their services to mid-sized and large companies in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas.
