Recycle Old Holiday Lights

Don’t know what to do with those strings of broken or unused holiday lights?  Recycle them! Several communities have joined with the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) to recycle strings of unused or nonfunctioning lights and extension cords.  Garlands, live greens, wreaths and other non-recyclables are not accepted.  In Mount Prospect, you can recycle  your holiday lights at Public Works (1700 W. Central Road) from 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on weekdays through February 11.  Please call 847/870-5640 for more information.
