We have lots of flattened cardboard boxes from moving but the recycling bin that came with the house is far too small. You can barely get anything in it. Does anyone know if there is a location that would accept those boxes for free? In the state where we lived previously, there was a public dump (recycling center) where you could bring your boxes for free twice a year. Anything like this here? Thanks!

P.S. The recycling truck wouldn't pick up these boxes from our curb because the driver doesn't leave his truck. The automated truck fork (or whatever you call that arm) just lifts the bins and that's it.

Out by the landfill - the recycling center will take it - Alan Neese Road, between 214 and 207, near Vermont Heights.

We left a lot of our moving boxes, wardrobe boxes outside the recycling area of the apartment we had prior to moving into our house. By the time we returned with another load, they were gone. I was happy that they could be reused because they were boxes we had bought. Especially the wardrobe boxes.

Do they take yard waste (I got tons of cut tree trunks). Do they also take construction debris (someone has dumped a truckload of construction debris on my vacant land)?

I’ve seen a lot of people put on social media that they have free boxes available . Just list it and state it’s on your curb for the taking, You could probably,do that instead of driving all the way to the recycling center
