Package Material Recycling

Pak Mail San Rafael is committed to protecting the environment. We provide consumers with convenient locations to recycle used packaging materials. We  are part of the Peanut Hotline, a recycle and reuse program started by the Plastic Loose Fill Council.  Please take a moment to read our guidelines for what we can and cannot recycle.

We DO recycle:

  • Styrofoam peanuts that are clean and separated from other materials.
  • Biodegradable “peanuts” that are clean and separated from other materials. Please do not mix them with Styrofoam peanuts. They have different uses.
  • Bubble Wrap pieces that are a minimum of 12″ x 12″, un-popped, clean, with no tape and separated from other materials.
  • Plastic air pillows that are full, cleaned and separated from other materials.
  • Sheets of white, firm Styrofoam 1 inch thick, minimum 2 square feet.
  • Styrofoam coolers

We CANNOT recycle and DO NOT accept the following:

  • Cardboard/corrugated boxes
  • Paper, including shredded paper and paper batting
  • Styrofoam that is molded, dirty, or painted
