Recycle Your Cardboard Boxes in Ladue

Thanks to the Ladue Horton Watkins High School students who are working on recycling, there is now a convenient place to recycle all your cardboard boxes.

No more bundling those boxes or wrestling them into blue bags,  Just pile them in your car and take them to the west end of the south parking lot of the high school.  Flatten the boxes and toss them in the big blue bin marked cardboard.
