Default Need help with boxes.....

My family moved to Stephenville a while back. We had a moving company move us. There are probably about 150 boxes of various sizes in our garage. Right before coming here, I had back surgery. And of course, like an idiot, I hurt myself trying to get things organized. I ended up back in the hospital. Anyway, it has been 6 months since the move, and the boxes have to go.

The moving company that moved us won't pick up the boxes, as they will only do that up to 3 months after the move. I went out to the landfill and they "don't take cardboard." I wanted to get a dumpster, but no one services Stephenvile. I am curious if anyone on here has had a similar situation....or you just know a place I can take them.

I agree with MisterMcCool. You can sell them. I'm sure there's someone near you needing to move and wondering where they are going to get some good, sturdy moving boxes. But an ad in the paper or on some local advertising medium like Craigslist.

years ago when I worked in a litho trade shop, we used to get powdered chemicals, bagged, in the nicest double walled boxes I have ever seen. The boxes were made in Belgium for Agfa. these boxes were so nice I used to break them down and take them home. Used the reasoning..you never know when you might have to move. The day came when I did have to move and these boxes really came in handy. For lack of anything meaningful to add to this thread...I figured I would tell this story...BTW....I still have some of those boxes.

If these are good quality, sturdy moving boxes from a moving company, I think you can get a bit of money for them.
