Recycle Holiday Lights

Holiday Lights Recycling
Holiday Lights RecyclingAs you pull out or put away your holiday lights this year, don’t throw away broken or unwanted light strings. Drop off lights and cords at these locations until Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023:

  • Farmington City Hall, 430 Third St. 

  • Farmington Liquor Store, 18350 Pilot Knob Rd. 

  • Farmington Liquor Store, 983 8th St.

  • Rambling River Center, 325 Oak St.

  • The Recycling Zone, 3365 Dodd Rd., Eagan, MN (year round)

  • Accepted: Holiday lights, telephone and appliance cords
    NOT accepted: Rope lights, cord adaptors and battery packs

    Holiday lights contain glass, aluminum and copper, all of which are recyclable. Holiday lights should not be placed in your home recycling bin, instead all you need to do is drop them off at participating locations. Every bulb of the light strand is dismantled by vocational center clients and then properly recycled in Minnesota keeping valuable materials out of our trash.
