Holiday Light Recycling

Do you have a pile of burned-out holiday lights? Are you replacing old holiday lights with energy-efficient LED (light-emitting diode) lights? Don’t throw out your holiday lights - recycle them! Holiday light recycling programs take your old light strands and recycle the copper wire inside them.

Several retailers and other organizations accept holiday lights for recycling. Call first when possible to confirm they are taking the lights, to get more specific location information, and to see how long the programs run (many end mid-January or earlier). Here’s the initial list of locations for 2015; more locations will be added as they are confirmed (all links external):

Other businesses and organizations may also offer holiday light recycling programs. When shopping for new holiday lights at retailers, ask if they have a program. Thanks for recycling your holiday lights!
