Holiday lights recycling

Recycling available from Nov. 19, 2012 through Feb. 15, 2013

As many residents and businesses begin assembling lights and decorations for the holidays, the Naperville Park District announces its third annual holiday lights recycling program in partnership with Elgin Recycling, beginning Nov. 19, 2012 and ending Feb. 15, 2013.

Rather than tossing old, nonworking lights in the trash, the Park District invites the community to recycle the lights in three locations throughout the District.

The following types of lights will be accepted: Mini-lights, C-7 lights, C-9 lights, Rope lights, LED lights and extension cords. All colors and lengths will be accepted.

The Park District will receive a rebate of approximately $.15 for each pound of lights recycled. The rebate will be used to support the District’s ongoing environmental initiatives.

“Last year the recycling drive diverted over 1 ton of lights from the landfill,” said Director of Marketing Sameera Luthman. “We are happy to partner with Elgin Recycling in this simple but effective way of caring for our environment.”

The following Park District locations will be accepting lights for recycling:

- Barn Recreation Center, 421 W. Martin Avenue (Hours: Mon.-Fri., 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.)
- Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center, 305 W. Jackson Avenue – Lower Level (Hours: Mon.-Fri., 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.)
- Springbrook Golf Course, 2220 W. 83rd Street (Hours: Mon.-Sun., 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.). Please note that Springbrook Golf Course will be closed Dec. 24-Jan. 1.
