What happens if it is difficult to bring the wine into the public domain?

I have many cartons of shemitah wine and I'm not allowed to lift heavy boxes. It will be very difficult and time consuming to bring them out to the public domain to declare them hefker on erev Pesach. What should I do?

You didn't mention what type of house you live in. If you live in an apartment, you can push them outside your door to the stairwell (if possible). A shared courtyard/lobby is also an option (if you live on the ground floor).
If this is not possible, it is possible to invite three people into your house and declare the wine hefker in their presence.
