Boxes don’t grow on trees. They ARE trees. Here’s another little known fact: they can be REUSED, and RECYCLED. Please, please, please do not throw your boxes away. Call us–we’ll take care of it.
Putting your used boxes in the recycling after the first use is, in our opinion, wasteful and impractical. It’s wasteful because we can get one or two more uses out of them, THEN recycle them. It’s impractical because of the shear volume. A typical disposal will require two or three times the volume a standard (blue can) receptacle will hold. Who wants that mess lingering?
Free Pick Up
You can schedule a box donation pick up any time after your move. We will pass these donated boxes on to families that cannot afford to purchase boxes themselves. Once a box has lost its structural integrity we try to find other uses for them such as: glass-packs, custom protection, fillers, and spacers. When a box (or card stock) is no longer useful we keep it our warehouse until we have enough to fill a truck, then we take it to a specialized recycling facility. We do the same for all of our plastic waste.
Our Civic Duty
There is no discount for recycling boxes. There is also no charge for this service. The expense of processing incurred is our contribution (diesel fuel, man-hours, and warehousing). What we get out of this is a clear conscience. We hope you’ll adopt the same attitude.
