our electronics recycler will happily accept holiday lights for recycling. Please remove large bulbs (>1"). They also take power cords, speaker wire, and peripheral connectors.
The proceeds from recycling used holiday lights sent to Christmas Light Source are used to donate books to Toys for Tots.
Holiday lights can be sent to HolidayLEDs.com in exchange for a coupon for new energy efficient LED holiday lights during their seasonal holiday light recycling program.
NOTE: strings of lights and other items with cords should not be recycled with containers or single stream recycling. They tangle in the equipment. Only bottles, cans and rigid containers go in the bin or cart.
