In 2017, Safeway/Albertsons became one of only two companies in Washington to own and operate a Styrofoam Densifying Machine.

Today, Safeway/Albertsons diverts 45,000 lbs. of Styrofoam out of Washington landfills annually. 

Earlier this year, the City of Auburn partnered with Safeway/Albertsons to provide two collection events for the Auburn public, collecting over 4,500 cubic feet of Styrofoam (approximately one 53 foot long semi-trailer).
