Metro South Transfer Station Starts Pilot Program to Collect Styrofoam for Recycling
Metro, in partnership with Agilyx, will now collect expanded polystyrene foam, also known as Sytrofoam, products at the facility in Oregon City. Instead of going into the landfill, these items will be recycled into new products.
Agilyx is an advanced recycling company that specializes in converting plastics. Before this pilot program, their facility in Tigard was one of the few places in greater Portland that could reuse polystyrene waste.
