The Foam Recycling Coalition, a part of the Foodservice Packaging Institute, supports increased recycling of packaging made from foam polystyrene through their grant program. The FRC seeks applicants looking to start or strengthen a post-consumer foam
polystyrene recycling program.
This initiative helps fund infrastructure for the collection, processing and marketing of products made from foam polystyrene. It targets post-consumer foam polystyrene products, which includes foodservice packaging (i.e., cups, plates, bowls, clamshells, cafeteria trays) and other types of packaging, such as egg cartons; meat trays; and protective packaging (used when shipping electronics and other fragile items).
Applications must be submitted by April 17, 2017.
