[Blabber] Where to dumpster-dive a few feet of plastic strapping material?

I'm trying to dumpster-dive for a few feet of plastic strapping material
[1]  to stiffen the opening of a dry-bag-style roll-top closure [2].

I can't find anyone willing to sell me less than a kilometer at a time.
But I assume it must be thrown away all the time by businesses that have
cut it off their packages.

Anyone know what sort of businesses in New York would receive packages
secured with plastic strapping?
