4th Annual Recycling

Are you finding your holiday lights have lost their twinkle? Year after year we find ourselves testing bulbs and replacing fuses, and when that doesn’t work, in the garbage the lights go.

In 2015, Village of Campton Hills residents brought in 259 pounds of broken light strands for recycling; 2016, we collected 332 pounds; 2017, we collected 264 pounds; For our 4th annual holiday lights recycling program, our goal is to recycle over 300 lbs of holiday lights. Please help us get the word out regarding this recycling effort to help get another recyclable commodity out of the land fills. 

Lights accepted include: Italian mini-lights, traditional lights, extension cords, rope lights, LED lights. Lights can be in working or non-working condition, from any holiday!

Please bring your lights for recycling to Village Hall during the hours of 9-4, Monday thru Friday. We will continue to collect lights into early January. We have partnered once again with Elgin Recycling.
