Recycling Polystyrene Boxes — 20/12/2021
Recently Polyfoam’s General Manager, who holidays in the wonderful Victorian country town of Loch Sport, visited the local Pharmacy and noticed they had a large amount of polystyrene boxes which they were finding difficult to dispose of. He informed them of Polyfoam’s recyclng capabilities and that he would be happy to bring our wonderful recycling collection van on his next trip to Loch Sport and collect the boxes.
All these wonderful boxes were recycled and in turn used to form polystyrene waffle pods for use in domestic housing concrete slabs.
Polyfoam Vaccination Policy — 21/10/2021
VACCINATION REQUIREMENT FOR POLYFOAM SITE ACCESS
To Our Valued Customers,
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Polyfoam has been a trusted and authorised employer, permitted to continue supplying the Pharmaceutical, building and construction industry, along with food transport and logistics industries. As such, the recent State Government mandatory announcement has required all staff on site to be fully vaccinated. Polyfoam has fully complied with this requirement.
To ensure we continue to meet this requirement, for any non Polyfoam personel entering a Polyfoam site, we will require documented assurance or exemption evidence in reference to your vaccination status, until further notice.
If you are unable to supply documentation, we regrettably have to decline your request to access our site.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, by contacting us via email or contacting Head Office on 03 9794 8320.
Spoofed phone calls — 30/09/2021
In the last few weeks, members of the public have been receiving scam calls with caller ID from phone numbers in the range (03) 8793 6840 to (03) 8793 6899. These phone numbers belong to Polyfoam’s Dandenong site but are not assigned to any user. The calls are not originating from Polyfoam. These scam callers are using spoofed caller ID to hide their true origin.
If you receive a phone call in the above range, it is not from Polyfoam. Do not call the number back; instead, add the number to your blocked callers list.

Polyfoam and its affiliates are happy to take back uncontaminated EPS foam at our sites for recycling. We are not able to accept general waste or EPS foam contaminated with food waste, labels, tape, laminates or other non EPS materials.
All our sites around Australia do accept recycling from the general public, we ask that you contact your nearest location for more information and to make a booking to bring your EPS foam for recycling. Each site does differ in operation so we do ask that you contact your nearest location for more information on their services.
