Because of its lightweight nature, expanded plastic and polystyrene can easily be blown or washed onto roadside, or into waterways, beaches and parks.
This makes it a major environmental hazard and one of the main litter culprits. In extreme conditions, the material may become airborne and cause accidents.
Polystyrene fees apply to commercial customers and oversized domestic loads – see our current waste disposal fees list.
Expanded plastic/polystyrene that is attached to wood, steel or any other heavy item does not have to be bagged or taped. This type of waste may be charged at the expanded plastic/polystyrene fee.
