Holiday Light Strand Recycling

Each year, the Village partners with Elgin Recycling to provide free holiday light strand recycling during the holiday season. 

A drop-off container is conveniently located in the lobby of the Civic Center, 535 Duane Street. Only holiday light strands and extension cords are accepted.

During the 2018-2019 collection, the Village recycled over 2,800 pounds of light strands and extension cords. This is an eco-friendly alternative to putting these items in landfills.

2019-2020 Collection

Collection begins Monday, December 2 and runs through February 1, 2020.
