Recycle your Christmas Tree Lights

posted Dec 7, 2012, 12:17 PM by Brian Donahoe
Have your holiday lights lost their twinkle? If so, the Village is partnering with Elgin Recycling, Inc., for a free holiday light recycling program from December 1, 2012 through January 31, 2013. Bring your old holiday lights to one of the following locations between 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday - Village Hall 440 E. Hawley Street; Public Works Facility #1 440 E. Crystal Street; Fire Station #1 1000 N. Midlothian Road; Fire Station #2 1300 S. Lake Street.

Only the light strands themselves will be taken; bulbs do not have to be removed from the strands. However, light strands connected to wreaths, garlands, or other material are not accepted. If you have any questions or bulk drop-offs, please contact the Public Works and Engineering office at 847-949-3270. For more information about the program, please feel free to contact Public Works and Engineering or visit
