Online shopping leads to mountains of boxes

As online shopping becomes ubiquitous, so do the boxes delivered to homes across the country. For apartment dwellers — and the managers of the buildings they live in — it’s tough to manage the boxes that pile up, sometimes clogging precious space for days. The problem’s only getting worse, says Rick Haughey, vice president of the nonprofit National Multifamily Housing Council, which represents many owners, developers and managers of apartment housing. People are ordering more heavy, oversize and perishable items than ever before, he notes, and building managers are “tasked with finding new and creative ways to meet the demand for package storage, sorting and security.”
