Don’t Toss Your Old Lights!

Don’t toss out your broken holiday lights! Recycle them. Holiday lights are not bio-degradable and will not decompose into the earth’s soil. They will take hundreds of years to begin to break down and are dangerous to animals as they get tangled in the strands. If you want to keep your lights from going to a landfill, recycle your lights instead. 

If you send your old Christmas lights to, they’ll send you a coupon for new LED lights that you can use on their site.

Once you have packed and shipped your lights, you’ll complete their light recycling form.  Then, they’ll email you a coupon as soon as they confirm shipment. They accept lights year round.

Package your lights in a cardboard box without any packing material–just the lights alone and send USPS, FedEx, or UPS Ground to:

W227 N6225 SUSSEX ROAD, DOOR #12
SUSSEX, WI 53089
