Do you pick up Styrofoam?

We currently offer Styrofoam as an add-on in Austin, Denver, Portland, the Twin Cities, the Bay Area, Bellingham, and the greater Puget Sound area

Styrofoam (also known as expanded polystyrene or EPS foam) is an add-on service. Ridwell members in the areas mentioned above can add Styrofoam to any pickup from their member dashboard up until 8pm the night before.

If you are located in an area where our Styrofoam add-on is available, you should receive a large orange bag for Styrofoam when we first drop off your Ridwell bin. Whenever your Styrofoam is picked up, our driver will leave a replacement orange bag for you to use next time. If you’re ever missing a Styrofoam bag, let us know at help@ridwell.com and we’ll make sure you receive a new one!

If you need more than one bag of Styrofoam picked up, please indicate the number of bags from your dashboard and then use garbage bags to bag up your extra Styrofoam. As long as we know how many bags to expect, we’ll be happy to take everything that way! You can also request additional orange bags. Just send us an email at help@ridwell.com to let us know how many you need!
