Amazon, Goodwill team up to use empty shipping boxes

Boxes move along a conveyor belt at an Amazon fulfillment center on January 20, 2015 in Tracy, California.

and Goodwill are teaming up to use empty shipping boxes and get rid of the clutter filling homes with the

program.

After removing items from the Amazon box, a user fills it with clothes, accessories and other items you want to donate and then visits

to print a free shipping label. The box can be dropped off at the post office or UPS or picked up.

Donations go to the closest Goodwill participating in the

program.
