Recycling Polystyrene from Building Sites – Mandarin Version

Recycling Polystyrene from Building Sites – Mandarin Version

Expanded polystyrene has a number of significant upsides. But it’s not all good news. Once the material is delivered to a building site, there can be issues due to poor storage. If it’s cut with a chainsaw, polystyrene breaks up, or if it’s not stored right, it can get damaged and break up. It’s so light it then becomes a litter and waste problem. And once the product cannot be used, it is also a waste of money.

The Plastics NZ Expanded Polystyrene Sector Group is keen to help builders tackle on-site issues. Members realise that there is an underlying need to inform and educate site managers and staff, and that a long term approach is needed. A Polystyrene on Building Sites Info Sheet is available. A Mandarin version is now available Polystyrene on Building Sites Info Sheet – Mandarin Version
