ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police are urging you to properly dispose your holiday items when you are done using them, particularly your boxes.  

Dougherty County police say leaving boxes in the front of your house draws attention to what you may have in your home and expose yourself to possible crimes.

 They say ripping boxes up into smaller pieces is the best way to dispose them.

  I would suggests either tearing them up, put them in your household trash or taking them directly to the dump,"   Said DCP Cpl. James Adams.

Police say boxes shouldn't be left in alleys either.
