When moving across town or across country, it’s important to consider using green moving boxes and green storage bins. We don’t mean green the color, we mean boxes and bins that are environmentally friendly. There are several alternatives for you to consider, here are a few suggestions.


Our clients at William C. Huff Companies work with our team to help determine the right number of boxes to ensure that you only order the number that you need for your move. One suggestion is don’t over order moving boxes and ask your moving company if they offer recycled boxes or have a recycle program for your used boxes. We don’t want your moving boxes to end up in a landfill and neither do you. William C. Huff Companies makes every attempt to pick-up and reuse boxes from our clients after they have unpacked. Our “no charge” for reused boxes program is popular for many of our clients who choose to pack for themselves. Additionally, we send over 250,000 lbs. of non-reusable box material and paper to recycling centers every year. When moving yourself, you may want to consider green storage bins or renting reusable storage bins made out of recycled plastic instead of purchasing new cardboard boxes. These are readily available and reasonably priced.
