Frequently Asked Questions

Getting Started

How do I start selling my Gaylord boxes?

In order for us to sell your Gaylord boxes, you’ll need to first submit a Gaylord waste stream form. The purpose of this form is to help us understand what kind and how many Gaylords you’re producing each month. 

Who do we buy from?

We work with manufacturers both big and small, recyclers, and box brokers. Click here to learn more.

How do I get paid?

All of our vendors are paid net 30, however as we build our working relationship we will pay upon delivery. We want your trust, and providing us terms will allow us to help best. 

What is the minimum quantity of Gaylord boxes I can sell?

A quantity of 25 boxes is the smallest order we can process to sell your Gaylord boxes. 

How fast can you remove my boxes?

Generally, it will take 5-7 business days to match your boxes with a customer. It is possible for us to get them off your hands tomorrow, however, we may not be able to provide you with the best possible rebate.  

How many boxes should I put in each stack?

This depends on the number of boxes, the box type, dimensions, and wall count. Click here to learn more about how to prepare your boxes.

How much are my boxes worth?

The value of your boxes depends on the condition, box type, location, etc. Once we receive pictures of your boxes you can expect an account manager to reach out to review this with you.

Do we provide other services?

We are a reuse company, so if there are any other items in your waste stream such as pallets, IBC totes, slip sheets or super sacks let us know! We’d be happy to help find a second life for more of your waste. 

Do we purchase Amazon boxes?

Unfortunately, we cannot help you with your Amazon boxes or any other consumer waste cardboard. If you are a private household, it’s best you call your local recycler for those items.  

Box Expectations and Requirements

What boxes are fit for reuse?

In order for a box to be fit for reuse they must maintain their full structural integrity, and cannot be applicable to any of the following: 

  • No panels can be cut out of any of the boxes.  
  • Any box that is ripped.
  • Any box that has had a forklift go through it
  • Any box that is extremely dirty or contaminated. 
  • Any box that has had a meat product inside.  
  • Any box used more than two times. 

Sadly, any and all boxes that contain any of the issues listed above cannot be resold and must be thrown out. It is imperative that these are sorted out from the good boxes and not given to customers. 

We pride ourselves on full transparency and want to ensure our customers are receiving exactly what they ordered, each and every time.

Companies We Work With

Manufacturers

At Verde Trader we understand that every manufacturing facility is different, with its own unique goals and restraints. In light of this, we’ve built our platform with the ability to be flexible, to accommodate those different needs. 

For high production facilities we are able to drop trailers on-site, and we have customers looking to pick up 25 Gaylords for smaller facilities. An account manager will work closely with you to determine the best solution for your facility, keeping in mind your individual objectives and concerns. 

Recyclers

With cardboard prices at a record low, selling Gaylord boxes for reuse can provide an efficient way to increase your revenue. If you have recycling accounts where you’re getting more Gaylords than you can sell on your own, we can help you. 

At Verde Trader we work with recyclers across the nation to move all of their Gaylords month after month, ensuring they never have a stagnant build-up of boxes sitting in their warehouse.

Submit here to receive a call from one of our representatives. 

Brokers

At Verde Trader, we offer you one of the largest inventories of used boxes in the country. We’re happy to work with brokers looking to both buy and sell Gaylord boxes and can guide them in finding exactly what they’re looking for at the best price possible.

Box Preparation

Box Type

Does every box you’re generating have the same bottom style? Are they all the same dimension? If you’re generating just one type of box, these questions aren’t for you. 

If you have a mix of boxes with different bottom styles and dimensions, please let us know if you can sort them. A lot of customers don’t mind mixed loads, but there are some who aren’t. Considering this, it’s important to be transparent about what type of boxes you have. 

Pallet Stacking

To create uniform stacks and protect the condition of the bottom flaps, alternate the direction of the box 180 degrees each time you stack them. If you have full flap bottom Gaylord boxes, do the same and also fold the flaps so they are not hanging off. 

Unacceptable Boxes

All boxes must maintain their full structural integrity, and may not have or be applicable to any of the following: 

  • Panels cut out 
  • Rips
  • Dirt or contamination
  • Used more than twice

Please see the photos below for examples of boxes considered unfit for reuse. 

Boxes Per Skid

With cardboard prices at a record low, selling Gaylord boxes for reuse can provide an efficient way to increase your revenue. If you have recycling accounts where you’re getting more Gaylords than you can sell on your own, we can help you. 

At Verde Trader we work with recyclers across the nation to move all of their Gaylords month after month, ensuring they never have a stagnant build-up of boxes sitting in their warehouse.

Residue and Contamination

Customers will reject boxes with signs of residue and we won’t be able to pay you for them. Because of this, it is important to make sure that each and every box is free of all residue or contamination. Any pellet, compound, or food residue must be cleaned off of each box.

The Pickup Process

Step 1: Confirmation Call

Once you’ve filled out all of the necessary information and uploaded your pictures along with the dimensions of your Gaylord boxes, you can expect a call from us to confirm and review your submission. We will walk through everything with you to affirm your needs and expectations.

Step 2: Email And Website Posting

Next, we’ll go ahead and get all of your information posted to the website and emailed to our customer list. In this step, our goal is to match you with a customer that will consume your boxes at the same rate you are producing them.

Step 3: Wait

After your information is posted on our website and the email is sent, it will take about 5-7 business days to match you with a buyer.

Step 4: P.O. And B.O.L.

Before we send in a truck or a customer comes to pick up the Gaylord boxes, we will confirm everything with you. You will receive a purchase order and BOL from us via email, if the customer is picking them up we will have them coordinate with you directly. 

Step 5: Signed B.O.L. And Invoice

Once your Gaylord boxes are picked up you’ll just need to send a copy of the signed BOL and invoice to us at accounting@mrawasteexchange.com and you will be paid net 30.

Step 6: Inventory Check Ins

From that point on, we’ll be checking in with you bi-weekly for inventory updates. Through a better understanding of what boxes you have and where we’re able to sell your Gaylord boxes quickly and efficiently.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to reach out to our account manager.
