Embracing Eco-Friendly Practices: The Environmental Rewards of Reusing and Recycling Removal Boxes
June 20, 2023

At Premier Movers, we hold a strong belief in prioritizing the environment while delivering excellent removal services. In line with our commitment to sustainability, we are excited to share with our customers the eco-friendly practices associated with the use of removal boxes. By reusing and recycling these boxes, we can make a significant positive impact on our planet.

Boxes That Are Reusable and Recyclable

Did you know that most removal boxes used by BAR (British Association of Removers) Members in the UK are crafted from a minimum of 85% recycled papers? Right from the start, these boxes boast a considerably lower carbon footprint compared to their non-recycled counterparts. But their environmental benefits don’t stop there. With proper care, these boxes can be reused not just once, but twice or even three times before they are ultimately recycled, making them even more environmentally friendly.

Collecting and Reusing Boxes: Your Contribution to Sustainability

As part of our unwavering commitment to sustainability, Premier Movers proudly offers a convenient box collection service for our valued customers. Once you’ve completed your unpacking, simply inquire about our box collection service, and we’ll gladly assist you. To ensure a seamless collection process, we kindly recommend cutting the tape along the flaps with care, ensuring the boxes remain dry and clean, and flattening them for easy pickup. By entrusting us with the collection of these boxes, you actively participate in extending their lifespan, reducing the demand for new boxes, conserving valuable resources, and minimizing waste. Together, we make a significant impact on our environment.

Recycling as a Last Resort

In situations where the boxes cannot be collected or reused by others, it is crucial to adopt responsible recycling practices. By removing as much tape as possible and breaking the boxes down into smaller pieces, they can easily fit into your kerbside recycling receptacle. This ensures that the materials used to create the boxes are given a new life rather than ending up in landfills. Recycling should always be the last resort, pursued only after exhausting all possibilities for reuse.

At Premier Movers, we remain dedicated to providing environmentally friendly removal services by actively promoting the reuse and recycling of removal boxes. Let’s work together to make a positive impact on our planet!”
