    How do you guys get rid of all your boxes...

    Advertisements
    after pack out????


    We just have a ton of crap. I mean are there services that will do this for you or do you just make a bunch of trips to the dump?


    Also if you live in Norfolk or have...where is the closest dump? I googled it and I found one in VA Beach but I'm assuming there is one closer.


    EDIT: I also need to know just a place the hauls anything you no longer want....I just looked we have at least 5 huge boxes just filled with garbage/keepsakes that we are tossing.

    We saved them for awhile and then slowly put them out to the trash for recycle.

    We have all of ours sitting in the basement. I want to get rid of them but DH wants to save "just in case".

    You could list them on Craigslist for free.

    When we moved here the movers told me to set aside all of the boxes and when I was done to call them and the next time they were in the area they'd come out and pick them all up.

    oh I know what you mean. We just moved too and we have alot of boxes and are still unpacking some of them and some we arent even going to open. But yes there are some moving companies who will come and pick them up for free and the paper too. But they will only do it once so we need to make sure that we have opened all the boxes we can first.
