While there is no guarantee that free boxes can be obtained from Wal-Mart, there are a few tricks that may help people earn a few free boxes. It should be noted, however, that Wal-Mart either bales and sells the cardboard boxes or recycles them to reuse as pizza boxes, so the chances of obtaining free boxes may be slim. Some Wal-Mart boxes are even marked with the cost of the box and with the reminder to break it down to be recycled.
The following shows one trick for obtaining free boxes from Wal-Mart.
- Scope out Wal-Mart stores
- Go to the store close to midnight
- Ask permission
- Choose and pick up boxes
Determine the nearest Wal-Mart stores in the area and plan the quickest route to the locations.
At around 11:30 in the evening, most Wal-Mart stores will be unloading boxes to restock the shelves.
Find an employee who is getting rid of the boxes and ask if some can be spared.
Boxes will be strewn all over the store when the employees are restocking. Load a few flattened boxes on the shopping cart and take them. Make sure not to load any box with the word Wal-Mart printed on it.
