Holiday string light recycling going on now

| November 18, 2019

COSHOCTON – Wait! Stop! Don’t throw away those broken strings of holiday lights; turn them in to be recycled! Although string lights should not be placed in the regular recycling bins, there is a solution for this special item.

Coshocton County Recycling & Litter Prevention is teaming up with Three Rivers Therapy and Premiere Fitness to provide drop-off sites for those old lights. From Nov. 18 through Dec. 10, bring your broken string lights to Premiere Fitness, 423 Main Street, Three Rivers Therapy, 353 Walnut Street, or Coshocton County Recycling & Litter Prevention, 401 ½ Main Street, for collection during business hours.

As you replace your holiday lights, consider purchasing LED lights. According to the US Department of Energy, LEDs use up to 75 percent less energy and last about 25 times as long as incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs also do not get hot to the touch, so they are safer, too.

Questions can be referred to Tammi Rogers, Coshocton County Recycling and Litter Prevention Program Manager, 740-575-4813.
