All our products are 100% recyclable
How it works
Recycling AirPop Polystyrene benefits our planet and our communities. Incorporating recycled materials into new products means much less resources are used.
We are committed supporting the recovery of 100% of our products for recycling.
It takes a community
HMP is part of a network of Airpop Polystyrene manufacturers and recyclers across New Zealand and the world that have joined forces to rescue AirPop/Polystyrene from landfill.
Customers can contact members of this recycling network to arrange to either drop these off or have them picked up depending on the service available in their area.
Contact us to arrange recycling within the Nelson and Tasman areas.
What is accepted?
HMP and our partner recyclers will accept clean polystyrene, including our whole range of Airpop packaging products, as well as any other AirPop/Polystyrene items such as the extra packaging from new appliances or equipment.

Guidelines and requirements
Polystyrene packaging can become a problem if it is not handled correctly. When it is broken the small beads can easily blow away and become unwanted litter. Help us look after the environment, by following these guidelines:
Storage and transport
Store and transport in securely covered bags or bins
Avoid cutting or breaking the packaging into pieces to reduce the spread of dust or any broken pieces
Ensure the bags or bins are free from any general rubbish
Secure these to ensure they don’t blow away
No coloured polystyrene
No plastic film or foam wrapping
No peanut shaped loose foam packaging
No labels or tape
No contaminated polystyrene – containing food, organic matter or construction debris
