Can polystyrene be recycled?
Polystyrene is a type of plastic which is not commonly recycled and should be placed in your bag or bin for non-recyclable waste.
Good to know
Expanded polystyrene is sometimes used for take-away food containers and to package white goods like microwaves. Polystyrene is also sometimes used for other food packaging like multi-pack yoghurts.
Some local councils accept it in recycling collections although it is unlikely to actually be recycled.
