Elgin Recycling, in partnership with the Village, Park District and Public Library will be coordinating a holiday light recycling program effort that kicks off on Monday, November 17th continuing thru Monday, February 2nd. Holiday lights acceptable for recycling include traditional bulb lights (screw in), mini-Italian lights, rope lights, LED lights and frayed and non-working extension cords. The copper wire within holiday light strands and extension cords has considerable value on the reclaimed metals market and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of reclaimed copper will be donated to the Village’s Christmas Sharing program that provides food, clothing and toys to under-resourced families during the holiday season.
