Is it that you only want to sell off the boxes?

I do know that they collect the boxes but not sure if they buy back. Unless you find the 'main' shop, they will buy, I think. My dad does keep all the old newspaper then sell off in 1 shop in Bukit Batok.

Ya, trying to get rid of cartons. So many cartons. Maybe I should just "donate" to old folks around the neighborhood who are picking them up as a "job".

I even saw an old man sleeping on cardboard. Too far to carry the boxes to him.

Nowadays there are quite a few 'foreign talent' gunis around that will 'fight' for stuff with the regular local gunis.. ..
I recently moved and had quite a bit to dispose off, goodness .. they can really make a mess, claiming territories and all.
Maybe you can ask guni to go to your unit to collect.. :smile:
