Police warn against leaving boxes from expensive gifts on curb

Once families are done celebrating, here are some tips to help keep you and any new presents safe. This includes the best ways to dispose of any extra holiday waste, as well as other things to watch out for. 

One of the big things is to be careful about what you leave out with your trash. Boxes of items you’ve recently purchased or received during the holidays could attract thieves. 

Another option is to recycle. Wrapping paper and cardboard boxes can all be recycled, rather than thrown away. 

people should make sure your house is well lit, and that your new expensive items aren’t in the open for others to view. 

And if you plan on being out of town this week for New Years, even if for one night, let a trustworthy friend or neighbor know to check on your house.
