Collapse boxes at recycling sites

I went to two recycling sites today (13th Avenue and 25th Street South and at CashWise foods). I am not writing to berate the city of Fargo, but at both locations the cardboard bins were full to overflowing with cardboard boxes placed on the ground around the bins.

The reason they were full is that people evidently don’t understand the writing on the side of the containers that reads “cardboard only – please break boxes down,” which is just common sense. If the boxes are broken down, the bins will hold a lot more than if the boxes are left intact.
