Where to Recycle Holiday Lights

Christmas LightsIt’s that time of year! I take out my holiday lights, ready to string them around my Christmas tree only to discover numerous strandas that are beyond repair. But don’t just toss them! String lights can be recycled. Christmas lights are made from copper, glass, and plastic all which can be either recycled or reclaimed in some way. They are also dangerous to animals because animals can get tangled in them.

If you want to keep your lights from going to a landfill, take a little extra time and recycle them. Box up your lights and send them to Holiday LEDS Recycling via USPS, FedEx, or UPS Ground to:
