Yes, but some of the smaller ones do end up in the trash can sometimes. The large or medium ones I use to make storage boxes out of. I get wild printed paper and wrap the box and cut the flaps and then I have cute boxes to store my craft supplies, underwear,and even one of them is dedicated to my vibes! Lol. I have made them with bows and ribbons on them for friends and family too.

I usually keep all of them and reuse them....I end up shipping a lot of things out so it helps to have extra boxes!!

I recycle everything and I compost. I'm pretty intense when I visit family and I see them wasting water or throwing things that can be recycled or composted but I don't think I am very maniac about it. Bit still....it isour future I am invegsting in by being careful.

The only box I haqven't recycled I am keeping to store my pillow in for when I move in a month. I don't want my family to start asking questionsw...lol.

I've been hoarding mine, no one around here recycles other than metal, plastic, and glass. But I feel so guilty about throwing them out, so I just keep them in hopes I'll have a use for them!

I actually reuse, since I ship a lot of stuff too, so I kinda count that as recycling?

I recycle most of them, and any which don't get recycled get re-used for shipping.

I have been wondering if we can re use them for selling things ourselves, I am starting up on eBay and it would be so much easier to just use those! Does any one know if we can?

OK just saw a post where someone else re uses as well. Good to know!

The EPA standards suggest a hierarchy that goes like this:

1. Avoidance - not having to much packing
2. Reuse - congrats to those that who can find another for the boxes
3. Recycling

Yes, I reuse the boxes if they are of a certain size. The small ones get thrown out though.... I can't find a purpose for them and also don't have the room to keep everything. Boxes aren't something I hoard for no reason....lol.

That's what I use the reasonable size ones for - sending the items I sell on ebay.

I recycle everything I possibly can, and I often use shipping boxes again for moving and storage.

I save them for craft projects; cake boards, gingerbread houses, whatever you can think of. I always need cardboard.

I was wondering about this too! I always recycle (and occasionally reuse) boxes and packaging that doesn't have naked people or clear indications that they once contained sex toys. I have NO idea what to do with that packaging because I hate throwing it away, but I would be really uncomfortable walking in to the recycling center with a bunch of vibrator/dildo boxes.

What does everyone else do with theirs?

I often sell on eBay and always love boxes to ship things in. So boxes get stored until I need them. Saves on buying shipping supplies when I am unable to use a Priority Mail box

Yep, more the most part I recycle every box that comes in this house. I do save a few boxes for return shipping reasons and for storage. I got a box of protein drinks for my surgery and I kept looking at this thinking "This is a great box, but for what?" Because it has individual compartments for safely shipping the drinks, it was ideal for storing all of our extra power cords, cables and wires. No longer will I search through a jumbled tangle of cables, they are organized and stored nicely now.
