There are four main options for reducing Styrofoam packaging waste, known as the 4 R’s:

a) Reduce – refers to the reduction of natural resources used. Single-use disposable product should be avoided. Styrofoam usage can be reduced by optimising packaging design, thus reducing environmental burden and cost.

b) Re-use – Styrofoam packaging can be re-used as multi-trip packaging, e.g. for the internal transport of partially assembled goods. Another simple re-use of the packaging is to grind it and use it as soil conditioner to improve drainage and aeration.

c) Recycle – the reprocessing of used Styrofoam packaging to make a new material such as hardwood replacement for making garden furniture, slate replacement for roofing tiles and new plastic items such as coat hangers, CD and video cases.

d) Recover – Styrofoam has a very high calorific value, higher than that of coal, and can be safely burnt in energy recovery units, or incinerators with proper pollution control equipment, without giving off toxic or environmentally damaging substances.
