Recycle Foam Egg Cartons

Egg cartons ready to recycle EGG CARTONS

Statistics show that the average American family of 4 uses around 41 dozen egg cartons each year; that’s about 1.4 pounds of polystyrene foam cartons. While we haven’t found any online options, you can mail them here for recycling, and they are so lightweight it won’t cost very much in shipping:

    Are you still taking egg cartons for recycling? We are a small central Montana community and interested in a recycle program for egg cartons. Can you send me the particulars?

    Thanks,

      Hi Lois,

      The Dolco Packaging plant in Lawrenceville, GA has a recycle bin in their parking lot where people can drive by and drop off foam egg cartons for recycling. They have 4 locations in the U.S. and one is in Washington state. Check out this link, http://www.decaturchamber.org/MemberDetails.aspx?ID=38. There is a contact number for you to call to see how your community can set up a recycling program with Dolco Packaging.
