A specific type of Styrofoam called polystyrene will be collected.  Typically this type of Styrofoam has a #6 embossed on it and is used to produce foam cups, plates, and packing material.  Unfortunately, because of the material type, foam peanuts and construction types of foam cannot be collected.

Only clean foam will be collected.  Dirty or soiled material will not be accepted.
