If you live in or near Evanston, IL a new Holiday light recycling program is in place for residents.
This program collects extension cords and string lighting from residents to recycle locally via a hired vendor. They don’t accept non-recyclable material like live greens, garland and wreaths, but if this year you decide to recycle your extra lighting – SWANCC in Evanston will re-purpose them into new products. They will not see the light of day in a landfill.
If you have extra sets of Christmas extension cords and string lighting laying around? Right now is the right time to get rid of the extra baggage and do a great service to the environment by recycling them.
