Recycling at Costco

Hattie_post_grayEver wonder why all those odd-shaped boxes are piled up next to the wall on the other side of the checkout stands at your Costco “club” (how come I never see boxes that shape anywhere else)?

Well, I finally figured it out; finally saw through the scheme. It’s their way of recycling. Sure, under the guise of reducing prices, give all those boxes to your customers—who you don’t give bags to even though they pay membership fees—and let them throw them away.

I’m gonna have to check on this, but I bet there are none of those big metal garbage bins behind the club either, cause they don’t have any trash. We take it all home. •
