Gaylord Totes

We Buy and Sell Gaylord Boxes

As a leading national supplier and buyer of Gaylord totes (also known as Gaylord boxes), we offer a large selection of totes in different shapes and sizes. Our expansive inventory allows us to keep Gaylord totes in stock and ready to deliver to businesses across the country - meaning your order is delivered whenever and wherever you need it. We believe in providing sustainable shipping solutions right to your door so you can effectively contain your products while remaining environmentally conscious.

Named after the first manufacturer, “Gaylord” totes are ideal for containing, storing, and transporting large items and large quantities of items. The 3+ ply corrugated cardboard walls provide heavy-duty support and can hold up to 2,000 pounds of various materials. Gaylord boxes make it easy to save on freight costs by packaging bulk shipments in the same container and are useful space-savers as stackable storage containers.

In times when you need additional protection against outside elements, poly-liner bags keep your products fresh and away from contaminants. Gaylord totes are also extremely durable, easy to assemble, foldable for flat storage, and fully reusable and recyclable. Contact us to learn more about the cardboard Gaylords for sale we have in stock and ready to ship!

Buying and Selling Gaylord Totes

Whether you’re looking to purchase Gaylord totes or sell the ones you have, we make it easy to work with us as a partner. We buy and sell Gaylord totes and boxes through our commodity trading program, and our national network and streamlined logistics have established us as leaders in the recycling and reuse of Gaylord totes. Additionally, our multiple locations allow us to provide convenient dropoff and pickup options across the continental United States.

We offer top dollar for your used Gaylord totes. As long as the totes are in good condition, we are happy to purchase them from you. Businesses that generate an excess of Gaylord boxes can establish a pickup schedule on an ongoing basis, so you never have to worry about empty boxes taking up space.

Reusing material is important to us, and Quincy Recycle provides solutions that make it easy for your business to contribute to a closed-loop economy. Along with new Gaylord totes, used Gaylord boxes are available for sale as a cost-effective alternative. We strive to provide the best options for our customers at the best value. Certain box specifications may work best for your business operations, and our team will work within your budget and specific business needs to determine what those are.

Recycling Gaylord Totes

Even if your Gaylord totes are no longer in good condition, don’t dispose of them! We will collect unwanted totes, typically as part of a mixed-commodity trailer, and pay the fair market value for scrap cardboard. Recycling with us helps you reduce landfill waste and cost, lower your environmental impact, and add a new revenue stream to your business. Plus, it helps us offer quality recycled Gaylord totes to our clients.

If you have any Gaylord totes you would like to buy, sell, or recycle, give us a call! We’d be happy to go through our current inventory or discuss delivery and pickup options.

What our customers say:

“Quincy truly acts as a partner to their clients. They reached out directly to us to discuss our company’s unique waste needs and challenges, and helped identify solutions to help meet our waste reduction goals.”

Sustainability Manager, Frontier Co-op

“I can't say enough good things about Quincy Recycling. They saved my company about $30,000 annually once we switched to them to handle recycling one of our waste streams. It wasn't even a waste stream that they had a lot of experience recycling, but they did their research and made sure it was being recycled the right way. They've also been great about communicating with us. When I reach out to Quincy, I'm not just another customer I'm a priority, they get back with me right away.”

Environmental Health & Safety Specialist, NSK Americas
