Tiburon Peninsula residents spearhead effort to have Amazon collect cardboard boxes

A petition from a group of local residents calling for Amazon to cut cardboard waste by collecting and reusing the boxes it delivers has garnered more than 3,800 signatures — and earned the backing of the Belvedere City Council. Petition organizers Suzanne Morgan and Carolyn Lund — two of about 10 locals spearheading the project — say the idea, which they’ve dubbed the Amazon Pick Up Program, could greatly reduce the amount of cardboard that’s recycled or re-manufactured.
