HOW TO RECYCLE / REUSE YOUR BOX!
We so appreciate being able to reuse our custom insulated liners again and again! Your box and liner can be used as a travel cooler or recycled at your local recycling center - or return it back to us to use again.
OPTION 1 : The Post Office (USPS)
You can send a box back through the post office using the “Media Mail Rate” (It will take 8-10 days via snail mail but that is okay with us!) Simply place a used book inside (It has to be a book not a magazine - we will donate this to our local community), remove any notes and dry ice bag from inside the box, cover up the dry ice and perishable stickers and take to your local post office to mail back to us for $4-$6. You can also send Priority Mail or “Retail Ground”.
send to : Five Marys 6732 Eastside Rd Fort Jones CA 96032.
Once you’ve sent 10 boxes back via USPS at your cost, we would love to reward you with $100 in credit on your next order! Just email us after 10 returns for your code email@example.com
OPTION 2: UPS
We can provide a UPS return label to leave the box(es) on your porch for pick up or you can take them to a UPS shipping center. The UPS label costs us a little more than the price of the liner, so we require that you save 2-4 of the boxes of the same size to stack and tape together as one box (since they are so light empty) before you ship them back. The liners are the most valuable part of the box, so you can also pack one liner inside a second box/liner and recycle the first cardboard box. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to print a return UPS label!
These ship to our Farm Store at 11903 Main Street Fort Jones, CA 96032. Since we cover the shipping cost on this option, it is the only one that doesn’t qualify for a shopping credit, thanks for understanding!
OPTION 3 : DROP OFF!
If you live in the SF Bay Area you can drop off boxes at Mary’s parents house at 931 Menlo Oaks Drive in Menlo Park, CA. They are right near the Bay Rd exit off Highway 101 and you can leave boxes on the front porch or behind the house (down the cul-de-sac) by the back gate or garage doors.
OR if you are traveling by Five Marys Burgerhouse on Main Street in Fort Jones, CA - you can always stop in for a meal and drop your boxes off there!
If you’ve dropped off 10 boxes at either location, we would love to reward you with $100 in credit on your next order! Just email us after 10 returns for your code email@example.com
OPTION 4 : SHARE WITH OTHER BEEF SHIPPERS!
Coming Soon - we hope to have drop-spots all over the US at other farms/ranches and storefronts where you can drop boxes locally for other ranchers in the M5 Entrepreneurs group to re-use! We will have a reward system set up (ie $5 off coupon for that farm) since they’ll get to use the box again for their shipments. Stay tuned!
