I urgently require someone to get rid of a lot of flat cardboard boxes without disposing of them.

This task requires the runner to come up with a way or ways to get rid of a lot of cardboard boxes in a way that is not wasteful and then implement it.

Frances is moving out of her warehouse by Monday morning and has excess cardboard boxes because she cannot take them all with her. She said that they would go to waste and be thrown away as local landfill but I hate wasteful consumerism. These cardboard boxes are still wonderfully useful to many people and just needs to be given the chance! The cardboard boxes may be sold or given away for free, as long as they not thrown away!

They can be given to other sellers to help with their packaging requirements, people that are moving house and need more boxes, or even homeless people as bedding and shelter! It doesn't matter who gets it, as long as it is not wastefully thrown away!

There are two (possibly 3) sizes of boxes: one is perfect for mailing computer hard drives, the second is bigger than the first and perfect for moving small but heavy objects and the third (if there is a third) is bigger than the second box. Please see the attached pictures for a better idea. The 600ml bottle used in the first picture is a rough measurement reference. Although the slits along the boxes are long, they do not have to be folded at those places, therefore you can store more in them or cut the slits longer and close the box up smaller if you like!

You may place posts on ebay, gumtree, trading post, facebook, twitter, etc if they want. Or pick it up to use for yourself! If one person were to take all the boxes available, they would need to stack them neatly in a small truck or van to take them all.

I will pay you via Paypal at the completion of the task. Even if you cannot have all the boxes moved, I will pay you the task fee on the condition that you have completed the task on a best endeavours basis.

Hi Tim, $20 is the maximum I am willing to pay YOU to get rid of the boxes. If you want me to pay you LESS than that, feel free to "make an offer".
If you want to buy them FROM me, then you are more than free to give me an offer as a comment on this wall =)
There are too many for one ute load. If you want them all, you may have to make multiple trips!

Hi Theresa, I realise the task has expired but wondering if boxes still available? I just saw the task and I am at Hornsby and can pick up this evening.
