General Agency Information
Name:Waste to Waves
Description:Waste to Waves(TM) is an exciting new program by Sustainable Surf. It's for recycling lots of different waste materials into new, eco-friendlier surfing products.

By participating, you can directly help create "greener" surfboard materials that help reduce negative impacts from surfboard production, and you'll be diverting this foam/plastic trash away from the waste stream and potentially ending up on our oceans, waves and beaches. Thank you.

The program operates in select surf shops in both Southern and Northern CA. We can't work without your help! So head down to your local participating surf shop to drop off your recyclable "styrofoam" into a Waste to Waves branded collection box.

We only accept:
- Clean, white EPS foam from packaging materials (such as what came with your new television)

Stuff we cannot accept:
- No food waste contaminated foam it will contaminate the blank
- No foam "peanuts" these aren't EPS foam
- No broken surfboards (see
