Recycle Your Broken or Unwanted Christmas Lights

— Written By
The holidays are upon us again and as you begin to decorate you will inevitably come across a strand or two of dead lights. Now what to do, get a replacement bulb? Nah. Throw them out? No! Being the environmentally conscious person you are, you decide to recycle. But how are you going to do this? With the Leaders in Training 4-H Club. Just last year they collected more than 1000 pounds of lights and earned cash to support their 4-H club and Mainstay, an organization that helps victims of domestic violence in Henderson County acquire the information and skills necessary to take control over the decisions affecting their lives.

Drop off your broken or unwanted lights at: North Carolina Cooperative Extension, 100 Jackson Park Road, Hendersonville, NC. This is the one-story brick building across from the ball fields in Jackson Park.
This is a year round program.
