    So I've been thinking about maybe getting rid of some of the packaging in a closet that's upstairs (I'd keep that stuff in my closet in my room... but I don't have one! lol) and I was just wondering if the Transformers packaging is recycleable. Like, can the actual box go with paper and cardboard stuff and the plastic part with the rest of the plastic and glass stuff? I'd rather recycle it than just throw it away lol.

    Makes me mad we don't have a generic plastic recycling bin anywhere near me... But I do recycle all the cardboard.

    its okay, i only found out recently...it was part of the Q&A from another site...and yeah, even if there isnt a close place to you to recycle, just put it all in a bag, and when the bag is full take it someplace...just throw it in your car and next time you drive by the recycle place, drop it off...most places have large bins around most cities that oyu can drop stuff off at...

    Ooo what about boxes that have a plastic window... I assume they can go with the rest of the cardboard... am I correct?

    you might want to see if selling some of the cards/boxes are a viable option here in the buy/sell/trade forums or on eBay; especially if they are older boxes. Could get some spending money towards new figures...
