[ARCHIVED] Holiday Light Recycling Now Available

Tangled Lights

Wheaton’s holiday light recycling program is available now through Friday, Jan. 20. Bring strands of incandescent or LED lights in any condition to the Public Works Storage Facility at 820 W. Liberty Drive between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays (except for holidays). Look for signs directing you to the holiday light recycling area just inside the gate. 

This program is for light strings only. Please do not drop off lawn ornaments or other decorations, and do not put lights in a bag or box. Elgin Recycling,, will collect the lights, which will then be stripped and recycled for their copper and plastic parts. No materials will be shipped overseas. In addition to residents, the City also welcomes businesses, schools, and other organizations wanting to dispose of holiday lights to participate in the program. There is no limit as to how many lights you can drop off for recycling.
