Are you in the same boat as I am. Is your house filling up with excessive amounts of Cardboard boxes? Seriously, I am starting to be at a loss of what to do with all of this extra stuff laying around. I know the excessive amounts of it are due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and continued riots. The shutdown of our economy and lockdowns has simply left us with shopping more online than ever before. I am seriously ordering more from amazon, and other online companies than any other time in my life. This is leading to up to 2 to 4 boxes arriving at my home each day. The amount of cardboard boxes that is now in my garage needing to be dealt with has reached proportions of 6 feet by 10 feet by 6 feet of boxes in my home. This is getting insane. The real issue is I am not really too sure on how to get rid of it. But I am going to go through my plan.
First I think the best way to get it out is simply to put it in my weekly trash. We are not allowed to use recycling again as of the lockdowns. I am not sure how that is not essential but I would contact your local government and let them know that you think it is just as I have done.
The fact that all these boxes are going to go to waste does hurt me on the inside and I feel like I am hurting the planet around me because of this. But my goal is to now just move them out slowly through my weekly trash pickup. I am however limited to 10 50 gallon bags of trash per week. The issue is I still have normal trash and extra yard work trash to put out each week and this leaves little left for boxes.
So my next plan is to cut the boxes up into small sections and place them in bags. I wish there was another way, but my goal is to go into my closet and pick out a fixed blade knife that has the best handle ergonomics. I want this so I dont get blisters and I also want to match it with the best edge retention steel. This is because cardboard is dense and abrasive then I plan to cut it up in small pieces and place in the bags to trash. That is my goal and I hope this is something you can do as well.
