Recycling Holiday Lights

While you're hanging your holiday lights this year, if you find some that no longer work, don't throw them away! They can be recycled! While some recycling programs are open only to a particular locality, there are two that are available to people in this area:
  • Lowe’s home stores offer a convenient receptacle to drop off your old holiday lights for recycling, though it’s not offering any rebates or coupons.
  • If you don’t have a local holiday light recycling program, you can ship your lights to HolidayLEDs.com, which will send you a coupon good for a 25% discount on the LED holiday light sets it sells.
I checked with a local Lowe's store and was told that all the stores in the area are collecting used holiday lights for recycling.
