Personally I'd suggest setting aside a table or countertop or spare bedroom or something and start moving all the piles of stuff onto that one single location and call it your inbox. As you pick up a pile to move see if you can EASILY (as in less than 2 minutes) toss some of the stuff into the trash. If you have to stop and think AT ALL then call it collection and put it in your location.

I think collection is absolutely vital and the more piles you have the more important it is to find one place for your new inbox, even if it's boxes of stuff that you process as backlog.
