Holiday Lights Recycling Program

Have their lights lost their twinkle? Year after year we find ourselves testing bulbs and replacing fuses, when that doesn’t work in the garbage the lights go. Last year with the participation of 27 villages, 1 park district and the City of Chicago, we were able to recycle 51,691 lbs of holiday lights that would otherwise been thrown away. For our 3rd annual holiday lights recycling program our goal is to recycle over 100,000 lbs of holiday lights.
