A lot of things you may find while decluttering can be of use to someone else. I pass along my shipping boxes and the packing materials to a woman in town that is an eBay seller. If you have lots of shipping boxes and packing peanuts sitting around, think about giving them to someone that can use them. We have a town website where it can be easily advertised, or you can do so in the giveaway section of craigslist. Just arrange a convenient time and leave them outside your door for pick up.
