Recycling Services in Hyde Park, NY
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle at Shipping Place & More
The friendly team at Shipping Place & More is committed to protecting our environment. One way we do this in our own community is recycling whenever and whatever we can. As a professional packing, shipping and business services center, we are on a mission to keep packaging material out of the landfill and reused whenever possible.
Package materials can be reused
When you unpack your new IKEA chairs or Bose speakers, the boxes typically includes chunks of custom molded styrofoam. Boxes from Amazon and other shippers typically have plastic air bags and bubble wrap. When we ship out televisions, computers, china and other items for customers, we recycle those valuable packing materials. This means less trash for landfills and less pollution to manufacture more styrofoam and plastic. That's better for the whole planet.
We encourage residents and business owners in the Hyde Park, NY, and surrounding communities to bring packing materials to us for recycling. Consider Shipping Place & More your recycling center for the following materials:
- Packing paper
- Styrofoam packing peanuts
- Bubble wrap
- Molded styrofoam pieces
- Cardboard boxes
For our recycling services, we can accept only clean packing materials for recycling. We are not able to accept dirty or torn packing materials or unusable boxes.
Styrofoam and bubble wrap: Solid waste that can be reused
While styrofoam and plastic packaging materials typically cannot be recycled in communities' curbside recycling services, they can serve as excellent padding in boxes at Shipping Place & More. Our packaging service relies on a range of materials to protect people's goods in transit. FedEx, UPS, DHL, and the U.S. Postal Service recommend compliance with their requirement that boxes should be packed to be able to sustain a three-foot drop during transfers. Styrofoam and bubble wrap are great for cushioning inevitable falls and rough handling in transit.
Moving boxes and packing paper
As part of their service, moving companies are responsible for the safe transit of all the worldly goods in entire households -- and they use many pounds of clean new packing paper and sturdy boxes to support that goal. Instead of practically filling a dumpster rental outside your new home with all the paper waste and sending it all to a landfill, let us handle what can be recycled. These new recyclables can serve as convenient padding for boxes we send out across the country and all over the world.
Recycling makes sense for the community
To paraphrase an old saying, one man's waste is another man's treasure. Recycling packing materials that aren't accepted in municipal recycling services is a good way to reduce waste and support a cleaner environment. Civic recycling is dependent on what markets are available for recyclables like aluminum, glass, newspaper, and cardboard waste. We are glad to be a part of the solution when we receive and reuse packaging materials.
