SAGINAW, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Are your Christmas lights old, worn out, or not working? Instead of tossing them in the trash, consider dropping them off at the Mid-Michigan Waste Authority (MMWA) recycling drive for holiday lights until January 15.
The MMWA holds the holiday light recycling drive to give residents the opportunity to recycle their unused, unwanted, or broken holiday lights for a good cause. Additionally, the program prevents thousands of pounds of lights from going to a landfill.
Once the lights are collected, the company will take them to Rifkin Scrap Iron and Metal Co. where the parts of the lights will be separated and recycled.
MMWA said all proceeds from the holiday light recycling drive will be given to the CAN Council.
