Recycle Your Old, Broken Holiday Lights!

By on December 14, 2020 in Misc, Recent News

A holiday lights recycling drive in partnership with the town transfer stations is underway.  All 15 Cape towns’ Transfer stations will be collecting used, unwanted, or broken holiday string lights until  January 15, 2020. The lights will be recycled at a local scrap metal facility.

This is a free program of Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, Barnstable County municipalities, and Ferreira Iron and Metal Recycling in Hyannis.  String lights typically contain copper, glass and plastic, which can be recycled or reclaimed

For more information, please contact your local transfer station for collection details.

Kari Parcell, Barnstable County Municipal Assistance Coordinator , shows a full trunk of holiday lights picked up from local transfer stations for recycling.
