I have come across the following sentence :
I understand it means something like "Are you throwing out this cardbox?". But what does 分 mean in this context and why is it at that position in the sentence?

Is that cardboard box the part you are putting out with the rubbish?
分 here means "part". Another example:
This is the part I am giving to Abi. or
This is what I am giving to Abi. or
This is Abi's share.
