Default recycling drop off point

Is there a drop off point for recyclable materials near the Villages? We live in Sanibel I have cut down a lot of cardboard boxes and would like to drop them off vs waiting for recyclable pickup date. It will be quite a pile, and not sure if there is a max allowable curbside.
Thanks in advance

You can drop off PAPER and CARDBOARD only at the collection area behind the Sheriffs Building on 466 and Morse. No trash and no other types of recyclables, just paper goods.

Call the trash company and ask them if there is limit...I don't think there is. They may even send out a separate truck and pick it up.

Their does not appear to be any limit on the amount you can put curb side for your reg scheduled recycling pickup day. If you should want to call to make sure, a number is also listed here:

Cool

We also live in Sumter county and when we moved in, we had lots of boxes to dispose of, as well.

We gave some away and the others, I broke down and placed them on the curb. Was a BIG stack of boxes and they took all of them...no problem.
