Our national levels of recycling polystyrene material exceed 650 metric tonnes per year.
Foamex is committed to a sustainable environment. This commitment to the environment has meant that we have the highest level of pod recycling in Australia.
The unique aspect of our business allows for Diamond Pod offcuts to be picked up from sites, which reduces the volume of waste sent to landfill. Scrap is cleared and then recycled into our Diamond Pods. Recyclability is built into our process.
