Best Practices in EPS Management

Projects Description

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) has remained a challenge to manage in the blue box for over 30 yrs. The CIF has funded a number of projects to test centralized and decentralized processing options. This project will build on these past efforts to accurately compare the collection and processing costs and pros/cons of the various options so that stakeholders can make informed program planning decisions. The cost of the work is expected to be under $10,000.
