Recycle your old holiday lights

posted Jan 13, 2015, 1:16 PM by Ricardo McCurley

For the next two and a half months, the Recycling Association of Minnesota is sponsoring a Recycle Your Holidays bin at the St. Anthony Park Library and at Tim & Tom's Speedy Market, both on Como Ave in St. Paul. Nearly 740,000 pounds of holiday lights have been recycled since the program’s start. Strands are dismantled by individuals with disabilities at vocational centers in Minnesota and recycled locally. See press release to learn more.

Did you know that the average Minnesota home can save between $10 to $250 each holiday season by switching to LED holiday lighting? When you replace those old lights, try some LEDs this year!  For more locations, you can find an interactive map at the link below.
