‘Tis The Season To Recycle Your Old Holiday Lights

Have your holiday lights lost their twinkle? Instead of sending them to the landfill, drop your dead lights off in one of our containers at:

  • Courts Plus (186 S. West Avenue)
  • Elmhurst Park District Administrative Office (375 W First St.)
  • Wagner Community Center (615 N. West Ave.)
  • City Hall (209 N. York St.)

Bins will be available through Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Look for the bins with the “Holiday Lights” signage.

The City of Elmhurst and Elmhurst Park District are partnering with Elgin Recycling for their annual holiday lights recycling program, with a goal of recycling over 100,000 pounds of holiday lights. Items that will be accepted include Italian mini-lights, traditional lights, extension cords, rope lights, and LED lights in both working and non-working condition. Call Division Manager of Facilities, Mickey Boyle, at (630) 993-8941 or MBoyle [at] epd.org (email) with any questions.
