Recycle Your Old Christmas Lights

Old Christmas LightsDo you have a pile of burned-out Christmas lights? Are you replacing old lights with energy-efficient LED ones? Don’t throw out them out – recycle them! Christmas light recycling programs take your old light strands and recycle the copper wire inside them.

King County offers a list of nearby locations where you can recycle your holiday lights for free:

• Magnolia and Maple Leaf Ace Hardware stores

• HolidayLEDs.com Christmas Light Recycling – Mail-in recycling program

• Lowe’s Home Improvement stores – most locations

• McLendon Hardware – all 7 Puget Sound area locations

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