Recycle old holiday lights in Chisago County

Ever wonder what to do with that balled up, tangled mess of holiday lights that don’t work anymore? Some people might be tempted to just toss them in the trash, but wait!  Chisago County has again partnered with the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) to “Recycle Your Holidays” and is now collecting old and broken holiday lights for recycling.

This holiday season, county residents can drop off old, unwanted or broken holiday lights, through the end of January 2014, at:

• The vestibule at the Chisago County Government Center, 313 North Main St., Center City, during regular business hours.

• Chisago County Household Hazardous Waste Facility, 39649 Grand Ave., North Branch, Mondays noon-7pm.

• The National Honor Society, North Branch Area High School, 38175 Grand Ave., North Branch, during regular school hours.

For more information about the Recycle Your Holidays program or other free household hazardous waste and recycling opportunities, call Chisago County at 651-213-8920 or email lathibo@co.chisago.mn.us.
