F.A.Q. > What We Do and Don't Recycle > My cardboard boxes are too big and/or cumbersome to place inside of my recycling bin. How can I make sure that RR receives them during collection?

Type your key word(s) in here!

Thanks for asking! As you noted, while modest amounts of cardboard can be flattened and placed inside of our 95-gallon roll-out containers, it can be difficult to place larger items inside given the dimensions. There are 2 things you can do to help your overflow items get recycled:

1) You can break the items down and place them and place them adjacent to your container (especially behind or next to it). Our drivers are instructed to collect overflow items at their own discretion, so its advisable to make their task as easy as possible! If they have the space (in the truck) and time to collect overflow, there is a good chance that they will.

2) You can consider renting one of our dumpsters. A small 2yd dumpster makes a great alternative to 95-gallon containers in most scenarios. Want a quote? Contact us.
