Dart Container Corp. is opening three new drop-off centers to recycle expanded polystyrene foam.

The new sites are in Ada, Okla.; Urbana, Ill.; and Twin Falls, Idaho, the company said.

The drop-off locations, which are open to the public around the clock, accept EPS in a variety of forms, including cups, egg cartons, trays, ice chests and packaging, Dart said.

The EPS, once recycled, is made into new products such as picture frames, baseboards and crown molding, the company said.

“We are excited to continue opening and promoting free foam drop-off locations throughout the country,” said Michael Westerfield, recycling director Dart, in a statement. “Many people don’t realize that foam is recyclable. We encourage all residents to learn what can be recycled in their city.”
