Recycle your holiday lights!

Don’t know what to do with the strands of Christmas lights that are tangled, broken or have lost their glow? Don’t throw them in the garbage – recycle them! The City of Darien has partnered with Elgin Recycling to offer our residents free recycling of holiday lights! All light colors and strand lengths will be accepted. Items include mini-lights (Italian lights), C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights, and extension cords. Please – no CFLs. Through February 10, 2012 you may bring your lights to the Darien Police Department lobby at 1710 Plainfield Road Monday thru Friday from 6am to 10pm, and Saturday & Sunday from 7am to 3pm. For more information please call 630-353-8115 or visit
