Reinventing Post-Move Materials: Upcycling Strategies

Moving house involves a multitude of tasks from organizing and packing to hauling and unpacking. Yet, after all is settled, the task of disposing of the generated waste remains. With over 8.4 million tons of moving-related trash thrown away annually, proper disposal is crucial to avoid landfill buildup.

Thankfully, there are numerous ways to recycle, reuse, or upcycle these materials. One common item, cardboard boxes, can be reused for storage, given to others, or responsibly recycled. Alternatively, they can be repurposed into useful or entertaining items like cat scratching pads or grocery bag dispensers, reducing waste and promoting sustainability.
