Eleven cardboard recycling containers around town are making a big difference in the City of Cuero recycling efforts.
Environmental services superintendent Cheryl Merzbacher reported that the City of Cuero presently has 11 commercial cardboard recycling containers at area businesses, including McDonald’s, Circle K, Dairy Queen, Sonic, Monster Burger, Rath Propane, Taqueria Vallarta, Crossroads Cafe, Mount Vernon Mills and Stripes Stores on Morgan Avenue and Esplanade.
