Styrofoam®/Expanded Polystyrene no longer accepted at Far West Recycling

As of March 17, 2017, Styrofoam®/Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) collection has ended at all Far West Recycling locations. According to Far West, they will stop accepting Styrofoam® in order to adjust to changes resulting from closing their Beaverton site, which will close at the end of March. Currently, there is not a plan to restart this collection program in the near future. 

Other options for Styrofoam®

Residents can recycle Styrofoam®/EPS at Agilyx's public drop-off center at 7904 SW Hunziker Street in Tigard. Businesses should call Agilyx at 503-217-3160 to schedule delivery.

Otherwise, Styrofoam®/EPS should be placed in your garbage cart.
