1-800-Recycling.com, an interactive nationwide website dedicated to enhancing and democratizing the consumer recycling experience, announced today that it has added UsedCardboardBoxes.com to its nationwide network of recycling resources.
UsedCardboardBoxes.com takes an innovative approach to providing low-cost, earth-friendly moving boxes to its customers. The company rescues truckloads of quality used boxes from large manufacturers that might otherwise throw them away. For companies looking to either get rid of used boxes at a better rate then recycling, or looking to increase sustainability, the company’s services couldn’t have come soon enough.
“It’s truly a great match and we are so pleased to be adding UsedCardboardBoxes.com to the 1-800- Recycling family,” said John S. Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “1-800-Recycling.com was designed to help people achieve their recycling goals and live greener lifestyles overall. Like us, UsedCardboardBoxes.com uses the internet to help people live greener in convenient and responsible ways.”
“The 1-800-Recycling idea makes so much sense,” said Marty Metro, Founder and CEO of UsedCardboardBoxes.com. “A national database that enables people to get rid of junk they don’t need in a responsible way, regardless of where they live, makes the very act of recycling so much easier. Now that we have partnered with 1-800-Recycling.com, anyone in the US can visit 1-800-Recycling.com and select cardboard, enter their zip code and 1-800-Recycling.com’s locater system will now direct them to our database so we can invoke the cycle of reuse!”
“Marty is a great entrepreneur in that he came up with a concept that is helpful to people and helps protect the environment,” added Shegerian. “And we believe relationships like this are just the start. We look forward to adding hundreds of other entrepreneurs and likeminded organizations to our family and database.”
The 1-800-Recycling.com site provides its visitors everywhere in the United States with a dedicated tool to find recycling locations nearest to them (every zip code in the country is covered) for whatever it is they wish to recycle, now including cardboard.
Consumers can also opt to call 1-800-Recycling via telephone for a 24/7 phone line resource. Both the site and the phone service can direct users to responsible recyclers of electronics, tires, oil, paint, glass, plastic, household hazardous waste, wood, mattresses, carpet, junk – basically everything that can be recycled.
