Springdale Police Department has created an alternative to placing your empty boxes from Christmas presents outside your home.
The police department is setting up a burglar box drop-off location near their front parking lot. Police say if you place your big-ticket empty boxes outside, it creates a target for criminals on your home. Boston Mountain Solid Waste District partnered with the police department to provide this service.
You may dispose of those boxes into the trailer. The trailer is only for boxes from new Christmas presents that might attract attention.
The trailer will arrive at 201 Spring Street and remain there until a week after Christmas. It will be parked on the north side of the police department.
