The Winter Park Police Department, in partnership with Waste Pro, will be providing a large dumpster for Winter Park residents to dispose of their empty cardboard boxes this holiday season.

The idea is that if you leave your cardboard boxes curbside they could be signaling to burglars what you just purchased for your home; essentially providing a corrugated shopping list for them.

The public dumpster will be available for use between December 15 and December 31 on the west side of the intersection of Virginia and Swoope.

Be sure to empty the boxes of all packing materials before recycling them.
