Instapak® Foam Return Program
This packaging material is comprised of a creamy yellow polyurethane foam encased in a silver, blue, white or pink polyethylene film. The cushion (both foam and film) can be returned to Sealed Air. We have established 27 return centers worldwide for Instapak® foam cushions. The cushions may be returned to the locations listed below.
Please ship the cushions prepaid (CODs will not be accepted). If you prefer to drop the material off, please call the site in advance. The cushions may be bagged, baled or boxed. The foam must be clean, dry and not adhered to any corrugated (cardboard) material. Some recipients collect the foam in the largest available box that does not incur "oversize" charges through UPS or FedEx Ground and compress as much foam as possible into the box before sending it to us.
In addition to our return locations, some local packaging stores accept the material for reuse, especially if the size of the individual cushions is not overly large. Check for local acceptance.
In countries, such as Germany, where laws mandate collection and recycling of used packaging, Instapak® foam fits within the established infrastructure.
Instapak® foam requires less cushioning material in each pack, reducing package size and weight. By expanding on-site as much as 200 times, it reduces the number of trucks needed for distribution. Material can also be returned to any Sealed Air location. In those communities where municipal Waste-To- Energy (WTE) incineration facilities are available, Instapak® provides a positive waste-to-combustion contribution.
