Kalamazoo EPS Recycling Art Mural Proposal


Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam recycling will be available to Kalamazoo residents starting in April! The Environmental Concerns Committee is piloting a one-year program that will offer four drop-off days. Residents can drop off any amount of the accepted materials.

Volunteers will be located in the parking lot of Mayors’ Riverfront Park from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on the last Saturday of April, July, October, and January (2022).


  • Foam labeled with a 6 symbol only
  • Foam must be in clear or translucent bags
  • Food containers must be rinsed, wiped, or cleaned


Styrofoam or sheeted insulation

Straws or lids

Packing peanuts


Program volunteers are currently seeking proposals for a mural to decorate the semi-trailer that will be used to collect EPS foam. The mural will be on the side of the trailer, as well as the doors. Proposals will be accepted through March 2021, with a winner selected mid-April. The winner will be awarded $2,500 and will be provided with the paint needed.
