It can take up to 1,000 years for landfilled holiday lights to breakdown.Recycling non-working holiday lights is a great opportunity to make the switch to LED lights, which last longer, and are more energy efficient and durable. Residents are encouraged to bring in their working and/or non-working light strands of all lengths and colors. Collection bins are located in the lobby of the Public Works Service Center. Lights should be free of all bags, binding and packaging. Extension cords, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs), pre-lit trees, wreaths and garland are not accepted.
