I have a lot of empty beer boxes I'm getting ready to throw in the recycling bin in town. But first, would they be ok to use for mulch in my orchard? They are Busch light boxes, kinda waxy-feeling on the outside of the box. My main concern is that they have blue and silver (I assume it's) paint on the packaging

I don't use anything with shiny paint but you could look it up and the company should have information on what they use on the outside of the boxes.

You could burn the boxes and then place the ashes to fertilize certain areas.
