During COVID, online retailers saw a whopping 200% increase in sales, which means a whole lot of extra cardboard boxes ended up in recycling bins. When you have an excess of boxes, first try to reuse them, either when you need to ship things or for storage around the house. If you can't reuse them and are ready to recycle them instead, do two things: Flatten them and remove all the plastic tape. The tape is nonrecyclable and should always be removed and discarded.
