Worldwide Foam: Sustainable XLPE Foam Recycling Solutions

Worldwide Foam is committed to providing sustainable solutions for returnable packaging applications. We take back scrap materials and provide materials that are deemed sustainable by the Global Recycling Standard. As a member of the Supplier’s Partnership for the Environment, we work with all levels of the automotive supply chain to address sustainable packaging challenges.  There is no doubt that XLPE is the most sustainable choice for cushioning and protection in automotive dunnage.

XLPE Foam Recycling

We now accept XLPE scrap at our Indiana and Georgia facilities, with plans to add a recycling hub to our Silao, Mexico branch in 2024. We partner with Schmitz Foam Recyling to give XLPE foam scrap a second life. The scrap foam is ground up at our facilities and shipped to Schmitz Foam Recycling, where it is repurposed into multiple different applications such as sport turf and playground underlayment. Worldwide Foam recycles over 30,000 lbs. of XLPE waste per month, keeping it out of landfills.
