    oops, did not read info above. now I know that the MRF has process that removes the tape. Wow, I love how much I'm learning from Recyclebank!

    I usually remove the tape because I assume that they're not recyclable (please correct me if I'm wrong). I usually break down all the boxes and put them in the largest box. It's good exercise if I have a bunch of boxes to break down plus it's neater for the haulers to pick up.

    I use my cardboard in craft projects then recycle what is leftover. We remove all tape which unfortunately is not recyclable in our area,

    I take my cardboard boxes plus packing material to my local UPS store so they can reuse them.

    I volunteer at Liberty Wildlife, a wildlife (mostly avian) rehabilitation and education center in Phoenix. Frozen food for the birds is delivered in heavy cardboard boxes with removable insulation. I use those same boxes and insulation to ship out frozen carcasses of birds of prey that did not survive to Native Americans who use the beautiful feathers for religious and ceremonial purposes. Not only do we keep these boxes and insulation out of the landfill (at least once), but we "recycle" feathers...giving new life to feathers that can no longer fly.
