About Us

American Box and Recycling Company is the nation's largest supplier of once used boxes. We have been in business for over 30 years! Our single 13-Acre Philadelphia warehouse contains over 4 million ready-to ship boxes. Join the hundreds of commercial accounts that use our extremely low cost, once used boxes in their operations.

Why are our prices so low? Supply! We are not a box manufacturer, we are a distributor. We were one of the first, and now the largest company dealing in New Overruns, Misprints and Job Lot as well as Once Used boxes.

Our supply comes from:

  • Manufacturing overstock, overruns cancellations, and printing errors
  • Corporate over purchase and product changes
  • Liquidations
  • Second-Use (high quality boxes used once for industrial purposes)

Because we get our boxes at a fraction of the cost of a newly manufactured box, we can sell for 30%-50% less. Our New boxes, generally are half the cost of a newly manufactured box, Used boxes are even cheaper. Because our supply channels are so well established and our inventory so vast, we can always find a box to suit your needs!

Much of our inventory has printing on the box, but all are top quality cartons. They are great for moving, shipping, warehouse operations and mail order. All our inventory is counted, neatly stacked, and banded to pallets. We also have an extensive inventory of Plain boxes in both New and Once used. We have a computerized inventory to help find the ideal box at the ideal cost. We also have sheet cardboard and flat scrap cardboard that can be banded or baled. We also sell Used Gaylords, (pallet boxes) in both Triple Wall and Double wall too! Take a few minutes to look at our inventory which is updated daily and you will see the enormous availability of sizes, strengths and degrees of printing available.
