Recycle Your Holiday Lights in Illinois

Tired of last year's lights? Now you can get rid of them guilt-free!

The Chicago suburb of Wheaton is just one Illinois municipality offering free holiday light recycling this winter season.

Residents can drop off their holiday lights at the local Public Works Building, Wheaton officials said.

The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County also offers a free holiday light recycling program, including all string lighting and extension cords.

Communities in that program include Arlington Heights, Evanston and Wilmette, among others.

Wheaton forestry superintendent Kevin Maloney says the recycling program means the old lights won't end up in landfills.
