Holiday Giveaway: Make a Guess

Ladies and gents, here’s your chance to win some Murfie swag! This holiday season, we’re gifting one human being with a custom T-shirt, stickers, and $25 Murfie account credit. The prize is yours if you can guess how many pounds of plastic we just recycled (see photos below for a visual; we recycled 17 boxes sized 4 x 4 x 4 feet). The guess closest to the actual weight wins.


For a chance to win the Murfie swag, leave a comment with your guess before midnight CST on Sunday, December 18, 2011. Make sure your guess is in pounds, and be sure to fill in your name and email address (your email is not published). Please, one guess per email. The winner will be notified by email during the week of December 19th.

  1. Ashley here. Thanks to everyone who left a guess! The actual number of pounds of plastic we recycled was 6,024. Meaning, Jeremy L had the closest guess with 5,555.5 pounds.

  2. going with slightly higher efficiency rate and vol/case on previous equation which puts me at:
    64 x 0.68 /.00621 x 0.140 x 17 = 16,679 lbs

  3. Total Weight (17 Gaylords) is 17,826 as shown below

    Gaylord Volume 64
    Efficiency Rate 0.65 SWAG
    Actual Volume 42
    Divide by vol/case 0.00595
    equal # Cases 6991
    Weight per case 0.150 Based on sample of ONE
    Total weight 1049 per gaylord
    Number Gaylords 17
    Total Total Weight 17826

    1. Oops, didn’t see it was 17 boxes only, guess I should have read the post and not just scanned the email. :) Reading FAIL.

    2. 13,117.505 pounds (my second guess, since we’re allowed one, feel free to discount this one… but it’s still my guess now that I know there’s only 17 boxes full of CDs :) )
