The Blue Earth County Environmental Services Department is helping to keep the holidays ‘green’ this season by offering free recycling of strands of holiday lights.
Recycling Specialist Molly Kjellesvig says there are many parts that can be recycled.
The Holidays Light Recycling Program will be available January 7 – 11, 2019 and will ensure that lights are properly recycled. Collection bins will be available at locations throughout the county.
Kjellsvig also says it helps create jobs for people with disabilities.
