This program has ended for the 2018-2019 holiday season and will start again in November 2019.
Please see our electronics recycling page for holiday lights recycling options since you can no longer bring electronics to our Recycling Drop-off at this time.
Do you have broken, burned-out or impossibly tangled sets of holiday lights stored away with last year’s holiday decorations? Don’t throw them out – recycle them for free instead!
Hours: Tuesdays - Fridays 10 AM to 5 PM,
Saturdays 9 AM to 3 PM
Closed on Sundays, Mondays and on all City Holidays
Incandescent, LED, and “icicle” light strings, along with wires and attached bulbs will all be accepted for recycling. No bubble (liquid-filled) or neon lights. All packaging material must be removed from the light strands prior to recycling.

Old, broken or burned-out holiday lights are collected for recycling at a drop-off location from mid-November to mid-January. Incandescent, LED, and “icicle” light strings, along with wires and attached bulbs are accepted for recycling during this collection period.
