We are in the midst of unpacking boxes after our move from NJ to Bolivia (211 near Supply). There are probably 150 to 200 boxes emptied or being emptied. Most are the heavy duty Lowe's boxes, small medium and large. Others are U-Haul wardrobe boxes and picture/mirror boxes. A few odd balls are here too. All have been taped and marked for our move. I'm in the process of emptying all of the packing paper and bubble wrap and breaking the boxes down flat - the way they started out.

These are once-used boxes that could easily be reused for moving or other purposes. Send me a private message here with your contact info if you would like these boxes. I really don't want to get involved in multiple pickups, so whoever wants them has to take all of them. Obviously, pickup only at my new home!

Alternatively, is there any other way to properly dispose of them?

You can put an ad in the "free" section of craigslist and see if anyone will come get them. Also, the County offers curbside recycling to all residents...do you have a blue recycling container at your new home? I'm sure they won't all fit in the container at once, but maybe over a 2 or 3 week period you could get rid of them. Alternatively, you can take them to a county recycle station:

You could advertise them in the Brunswick Beacon and say they are free.

Many communities have bulletins, advertise in them.

You probably have the same trash pick up company we have, I think they do the entire county, and they will take them.

I would be nice and only put out several at a time. Don't overload them all at once.

U Haul used to take them back if they are in good condition.

Otherwise, recycle at your local recycling center. I think most towns recycle these in Brunswick County.

After our last move, I just put an add on Craigslist. Free moving boxes and packing.
They were gone the next day.

Thanks to all. We found a local guy who is need need of work and advertised hauling services, basement cleanouts, etc. He took them all as well as a 350 pound rug we wanted to get rid of. It cost me a few bucks but well worth it to make it all go away and help out a local at the same time.

I see ads all the time on Craig's List wanting such boxes. You should have no problem getting rid of them. That is a lot of boxes to just trash, hopefully someone can use them.

Craigslist was already suggested and the OP has already gotten rid of the boxes.
