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.

  1. We just moved houses and stuck with this pile of boxes we used for the move. I’m glad to learn that we can schedule a bulk recycling pick-up of cardboard boxes. I’ll call them in later so that they can get it ASAP. This should help make the house look a lot cleaner.
