The cost of landfills now typically exceeds $100 per m3 of landfill space used. Polystyrene consumer packaging over a weigh bridge generates minimal revenue and so the cost of creating the landfill space occupied by polystyrene falls on the all landfill users through generally higher charges.
Commercial disposal companies harvest the revenue gained through collecting polystyrene in their volume based bin services, compared with the pittance they pay for disposing of polystyrene in landfills by weight.
The sale price of 100% recycled Palace Porous and Palace Pods are both significantly less than the cost of landfill space the polystyrene would otherwise occupy.
"By specifying Palace Porous or Palace Pods every cubic meter purchased is a cubic meter of landfill space saved."
