Recycle your holiday lights

Do you have a light on the tree that won’t light on one side? Perhaps you’re making the switch to energy efficient LED holiday lights. Either way, recycle your old lights. 

Recycle Your Holidays is a statewide holiday light recycling program. Drop off unwanted light strings at any of our 450+ participating locations during the holiday season starting through the end of January. Ace Hardware is one the chains that takes them but to find other locations: http://www.cleanenergyresourceteams.org/campaigns/ryh-12-13 

The program is a partnership between the Recycling Association of Minnesota, WCCO, Great River Energy, Ace Hardware stores, and CERTS (Clean Energy Resource Teams). 

It employs more than 200 individuals with disabilities at vocational centers throughout Minnesota. Every part of the strand is dismantled by vocational center clients and properly recycled locally.
