Residents can throw out expensive gift boxes away from home

Central Florida residents who want to avoid attracting burglars with boxes for expensive items sitting on their curbs during the holiday season have another option.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office says it's placing trash bins around the county for residents to recycle expensive gift boxes. The Orlando Sentinel ( ) reports that "Operation Burglar Box" has been popular over the last two years.

The partnership with Orlando Recycling and Waste Management started Friday.
