Recycle your holiday lights

Recycle your old, tangled or broken holiday lights at City Hall now through the end of January. Look for the recycling bins in the Rotunda near the security desk.

The Recycling Association of Minnesota is hosting this collection event. The organization has recycled nearly 840,000 pounds of holiday lighting since the program began.

The association encourages those recycling holiday lights to replace the lights with LED holiday lighting. LED holiday lights save up to 90 percent of the energy used by traditional incandescent holiday lights, according to the Department of Energy. A home can save $10 to $250 each holiday season by switching to LED holiday lighting.
