Not enough room in the Recycling Bin?
Broken down cardboard that is too big for the bin can go alongside or next to the bin. Other containers such as 5-gallon buckets, totes, small garbage containers, or an extra recycling bin can be used to alleviate an over flowing bin. Place all containers next to one another on the curb for pick up. Remember crushing containers makes room for more material!
