Styrofoam Recycling

Since our real estate office moved from 17695 S. Golden Road to 1214 Washington Avenue in downtown Golden, people have been asking if our Styrofoam Corral has moved.

The answer is “no,” we still maintain the Styrofoam Corral behind our old office (which we still own) and still take two truckloads of Styrofoam to the Centennial Containers in Denver every month, keeping over 200 cubic yards of the material out of landfills every year!

One truckload of Styrofoam from Golden Real Estate ends up being just one bar of “densified” polystyrene on these half-ton skids which are then delivered to a company which makes new products from it.
