Recycle Your Holiday Lights

Don't know what to do with the old strands of Christmas lights that are tangled and broken? Donít throw them in the garbage - recycle them! The City of Darien has again partnered with Elgin Recycling to offer our residents free recycling of holiday lights! Last year Darien residents recycled 1214 pounds of Holiday Lights. Not only did this keep them from ending up in the landfill, the city made a profit of $182.10.

All light colors and strand lengths will be accepted. Items include mini-lights (Italian lights), C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights, and extension cords. (Please - no CFLs). From November 20, 2012 through February 10, 2013 you may bring your lights to the Darien Police Department lobby at 1710 Plainfield Road Monday thru Friday from 6:00am to 10:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 7:00am to 3:00pm. For more information please call 630-353-8115 or visit www.elginrecycling.com
