It’s that time of year again, bring out your holiday lights and detangle the wadded mess! But what do you do with the strings that no longer light up?  Don’t throw them out, RECYCLE YOUR HOLIDAYSTM!

Home Energy Squad from Xcel Energy and Centerpoint Energy and ACE Hardware invite you to drop off your holiday lights at participating Ace Hardware locations. Collection bins will also be located at WCCO TV, so feel free to drop them off when you make your trip to the 2010 Target Holidazzle Parade.

In partnership with the Recycling Association of Minnesota, RECYCLE YOUR HOLIDAYSTM is a recycling program that disassembles every single part of your used light strings without it going into the landfills.  Plus, your donations will provide employment, training and job opportunities through Project for Pride in Living and Adult Training and Habilitation Center.
