NAPERVILLE, Ill. — OfficeMax has launched a new delivery program that reuses and recycles boxes it uses for deliveries to business customers. The new program – Boomerang Box by OfficeMax – is projected to reduce box consumption by 80% among participating businesses.
Boomerang Box by OfficeMax launches this month in Seattle, and will expand nationwide in the second half of 2012. Business participation in the program is free and voluntary for all customers nationwide that are served through OfficeMax's delivery fleet. The program is also designed for easy use to encourage widespread adoption.
"Every business wants to support more environmentally sustainable practices," said Sue Mills, director, environmental practices at OfficeMax. "With Boomerang Box we're giving customers an easy, no-cost way to help do that."
Businesses that participate in the Boomerang Box program will have their office supplies delivered by OfficeMax in reusable, stackable delivery boxes that are made from a minimum of 50 percent post-consumer content. Customers need only to save and stack the boxes for OfficeMax's fleet to pickup with the next order delivery. The cycle continues until the boxes can no longer be reused. Then, OfficeMax will recover the boxes for recycling.
