Polystyrene Cooler Return Program



 Polystyrene Recycling Program

US Customers Only

For our customers in the United States we are pleased to offer a polystyrene cooler return program to help reduce waste sent to landfills. To utilize this program you just need to follow three simple steps.

  1. After you receive your order from MilliporeSigma remove the product from the cooler, making sure to leave the empty cooler in the box.
  2. Put the cooler lid back on the container and then flip the flaps of the box so the pre-paid postage stamp is on the outside of the container. Seal the container using shipping tape.
  3. Drop off the box at any location where the United States Postal Service picks up mail.

The box will be returned to MilliporeSigma to be inspected and returned to service for another order.

MilliporeSigma completed a third party verified Life Cycle Analysis of our polystyrene cooler return program and found conclusive evidence that the return of the polystyrene coolers help to decrease CO2 emissions related to the use of polystyrene coolers. For more detailed information about your account email corporateresponsibility@milliporesigma.com.

We’ve also begun a pilot for our new fully recyclable cooler from our East Coast distribution center in the US. For more information on this pilot please visit our Greener Cooler page.
