    I believe this may work equally as well for getting your connection fired. But hey, they won't forget you!

    Not really. Its all going to the garbage and nobody really cares. They check your boxes and bubble wrap for product so you are not stealing.

    It's what it takes for you to get ahead. Someday the person you gave that $10 to will not so discreetly unfold it and place in his/her wallet while a video camera is watching. Then there's going to be a lot of questions for the both of you concerning just exactly what that money was suppose to buy. That's a cost of doing business that I can do without.

    Look I not trying to start trouble or cause problems but I use to work in a retail store that anytime I need bubble wrap or boxes I would ask the receiving guys to set stuff aside for me. I would walk out the front door with two 55 gallon bags of loose bubble wrap that came in from that days trucks and have the manager check my bags for their merchandise. Thats it!

    We recycled the cardboard that the company pays to have hauled away. All bubble wrap is thrown out. We always ordered in rolls of bubble wrap to send out. All styrofoam is thrown out.

    http://www.scrapmetalforum.com/day-l...tep-today.html - They won't recycle anything unless its cost effective for them.

    They throw almost everything out. Until recently they have started recycling chemicals, batteries, light bulbs.

    Ok, if you really need a monthly supply of good stuff, then listen up…

    Call this retail store on Mon in your area and ask them to hold boxes for you
    I never mentioned which store to call…

    If money is a problem than just walk up to a manager and explain your situation, maybe you will just get it for free...

    We ship high volume and buy from Uline.com. Best we've found so far. I would appreciate if anyone has found folks that sell cheaper than uline. You can get real fancy and import in volume from China but that can get complicated and you need to be moving a lot of volume for it to make $$$ sense.
