According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 12% of Americans, about 36.5 million people, moved last year. Moving can generate a lot of waste—from packing paper and boxes to unwanted furniture. If you are planning a move, consider renting boxes or purchasing used boxes. Donate or sell unwanted household goods, clothing, old toys, furniture, and more. And don’t forget to recycle your paper and boxes.
