Moving Supplies and Our Landfills

Here’s something you may not think of very often: How much waste do we create by moving each year?

Imagine how many people move each year. Think about all the boxes, tape and supplies being assembled for this one day. According to Biocycle, each person creates about 1 TON of waste and it’s getting harder to hide our trash out-of-sight. Even if we recycle some of this waste, that is still a LOT of garbage in the landfills!

Tips For Green Moving

Kansas City Metro Moving has the following earth-friendly tips for your relocation:

  • Use rent-able recopacks or Zipp Go containers, instead of cardboard boxes to move your gear.
  • If you must buy boxes, opt for corrugated boxes with high recycled paper content.
  • Recycle your boxes as soon as you’re done unpacking.
  • Donate your unwanted items, rather than throwing them in the trash.
  • Use newspaper, towels or bed linens to wrap fragile items, rather than bubble wrap.
  • Drop off hazardous waste like cleaning supplies at the proper receptacle prior to moving.
  • Rent a green truck that runs off alternate fuels.
  • Pack the truck as densely as possible to avoid making more than one trip.
  • Hoard any new packaging materials you had to buy to loan to a friend or use for your next move.
  • If you’re moving very far, consider purchasing carbon offsets.
