Recycling Dilemma #1001: Oversized Cardboard & Moving Boxes

Whether you just received delivery of a new jumbo flat screen television, relocated from across country or just moved down the street, dealing with the cardboard boxes can seem like a big problem… but don’t fret! Your curbside solid waste services provide a special pick-up day each month for recycling oversized and abundant cardboard boxes. 

Cardboard boxes too numerous or large to fit in the recycling cart must be scheduled for pick-up. The service is provided to each neighborhood once a month at no additional cost.

For a trouble-free pick-up, please follow these guidelines…

  • Flatten, tie and stack boxes at curbside.
  • Fold packing paper and place in your recycling cart for pick-up on your regular service day.
  • NO packing peanuts, Styrofoam™, bubble wrap or plastic.
  • Place items at the curb before 7 a.m. on the pre-scheduled pick-up day.

How-to schedule bulk recycling pick-up of cardboard…

  • At least 2 working days prior to the scheduled pickup day, call Waste Management Customer Service at 1-800-800-5804.
  • Request and keep confirmation number until service occurs.

Determine your pickup day…

  • Bulk collection of moving boxes and oversized cardboard occurs either on the 2nd Monday or the 4th Friday of the month according to the Village Bulk Cardboard Recycling Schedule.
    • 2nd Monday of the Month: Alden Bridge, Cochran’s Crossing, Sterling Ridge.
